Eleven things I hate about winter.

Posted on December 10, 2009 | By Christian | 2 Comments

Ok, I admit it.  I am not a winter person.  Not even a little bit.  And since my wife and kids are sick of hearing me bitch about it, I thought I would share with the world!

  1. It starts getting dark around lunch.
  2. Its friggin cold outside!
  3. Its friggin cold inside!
  4. Snow!  Shoveling it, idiots driving in it, its ability to find its way down the back of my neck.  Pretty much everything to do with it.

  5. Will my nose ever stop running?
  6. If one more kid throws a snowball at me I am getting a shotgun.
  7. Finding, untangling, and hanging Christmas lights when its 20 degrees.
  8. Dragging out the Christmas tree in January and looking forward to pulling pine needles out of my feet for the next 3 months.
  9. My car will never be clean again.
  10. Chapped bleeding lips that give me just one more reason not to smile.
  11. Having to listen to people who try too hard to like winter.

I do enjoy the holidays with friends and family though. (I’m not a complete crab!)  ~cg

    I am so with you on the winter thing. Give me one week, maybe two at the holidays then bring back the sun and fun.

    I am completely in agreement. Winter blows and sucks all at once. The only good thing about Winter is that it’s followed by Spring right afterward.
