No more sun until next year!

I was reading about a town in Alaska which will see no sun from 18th November until 23rd January 2019. Can you imagine that?

A lot of interesting programmes on tv about that part of the world. Living there and trucking there.

Do you like the winter?

I don't mind the cold in the winter. It is the wind i hate and the blizzards. Don't think i would like hot weather all year round anyway.

I wouldn't want hot weather all year round but I could live without the freezing cold weather. I can't imagine living where I didnt see the sun for weeks but I think it would be depressing.

I don't think I would like no daylight for weeks, but I do quite like winter, its a beautiful cold sunny day outside today, the thick frost is only just melting. We're just far enough north here for there to be a totally different quality to winter light, for me its not just the length of day light but the quality of the light, one thing I love about living in the counrtryside is not having grey sky reflecting grey concrete buildings and roads we get lots of different colours throughout the year.

Yesterday I was outside gardening, weeding the rose bed and planting bulbs ready for spring, it felt really good and it looks good to, I can't wait to get out and do the other beds. I suspect the robin and the blackbird will be happy to see me out digging the soil over too.

Quite bright today compared to the damp chill of yesterday wherein I was daft enough to delay getting some thicker socks on - took half the evening to restore my feet to a comfortable warmth.
Taking a break now from the great outdoors and setting the scene for the coming year - I'll go with 'Hen - make best use of what daylight is available and, By 'Eck, it can have a gorgeous quality about it.
Prolonged spells of any extreme: heat, cold or day-length, I do find a little wearing, but by now am accustomed to adapting to whatever arises and the avoidance of suffering and moaning about it.

not long now until our shortest day [light] !

I like all of the seasons and that's why I love our climate - wait 3 months and you will get something different.
I know the seasons aren't like they used to be in the good old days, but still prefer it to same old, same old every day...

That's amazing CHIOG I didnt know that. Alaska has some interesting natural phenomena with all that darkness and the northern lights.

I'm not keen on the winter. fewer places to go and higher heating bills.

There are plenty of places one can go if it is sun you are after, Egypt springs to mind as i was there last Christmas 25 to 30 degrees everyday :D

But theres lots of walks and outdoor stuff you can do in winter, you can take a flask of homemade soup with you to keep you warm from the inside out and you feel really good coming in from a bracing walk in the cold. At least in winter you can turn the heating up and wear more clothes, unlikea hot summer when the heating's off and there are no more clothes to take off and you're still to hot!

OOooohhh snow I love snow, except when it melts and goes slushy, I hope we get some this year, I want to see how Bertiekitten reacts to it, cats are so funny with snow.

The winter is refreshing and envitalising and snow is the most beautiful of natural weather phenomena.

Even more gloom as earthquakes strike!
