Some good things about winter!

Winter wheeling > summer wheeling.

No mosquitos.

Went for a bike ride on the local single track this past weekend. About -9 Celcius in the river valley. Any day on the bike is a good day in my books.

Snow fills in all the potholes and cracks and makes nice smooth roads.

No bugs splattering on your windshield is always a plus in my books.

Night time hits around 5:30pm vs 10:30pm. Kind of nice for a change.

No mosquitos.

No blasting stereos from a-holes with their windows rolled down.

No swamp ass due to heat.

Clean, white snow on unbroken trail on the 4x4 trails is very pretty.

No mosquitos.

More dogs kept inside in the neighborhood equals less annoying dogs barking at anything that moves (or doesn't move)

Snow on Christmas.

Used the snowblower Monday for the first time this Winter. But like the man said, NO MOSQUITOS!

Freezing rain advisory in effect this morning, but so far it hasn't shown up (here on base anyway)...hope they got it wrong...I hate that stuff.

Currently 28F / -2C
