Just sitting in my room and I can feel the cold outside. Can't wait to get home (at Uni right now) and sit in front of a log fire, then go out to the garden and watch the stars.
Don't know why, but Winter, man. Something about it and the homeliness of it all. Anyone here get me?
Ausfags gtfo. Your seasons are FUBAR.
I have a serious disdain for winter now. The heat with 90 pound battle rattle in the summer, whatever. But when it's winter your pack jumps up to around 110-120(for our unit) and you didn't sleep in nice comphy tents. It was a hole you dug, and your sleeping bag. Then you woke up wet, and more miserable than you were before.
I now loathe winter more than anything. I'm back near where I grew up, and it's not 1/10th as bad. But it's just and underlining feeling. Winter, and snow will always remind me of the blood stained mountains of shit.
It's also the best time for drinking, IMO.
Grimbergen Dubbel, Vedett Extra Blond, Wild Turkey and cooked meals. Whiskey in the morning, mid-afternoon and evening with the chill from outside contrasting with the warmth inside you.
Can't wait until the other ankle can bear weight and I can be outdoors with some cigs and a bottle of Balkan vodka or Russian Standard original.
Just can't beat the feeling of drinking in the winter time. Brilliant atmosphere all around.
Anyone agree or know what I mean?
Exactly that! I usually sit on my decking at home in the garden or on my windowsill, skin up and watch the flakes fall. So peaceful. Earlier this year there was a record snowfall in the UK and as a result, all major motorways were closed.
I decided to walk to my mates house to make an igloo, and his house is about 1.5 miles away, up a hill and just off a motorway. In order to get there, I had to, well, walk down this motorway.
Here's some pics. I cannot tell you how Fallout 3-esque it was. Fucking mindblowing and I loved every minute of it. Even got high lying in the middle of the road as there were no cars running for miles around and explored an abandoned bus (no money, unfortunately) in the middle of the road, all iced over.

Other place by my house that I frequent
Seriously, a cold beer on the beach? Damn, I want to trade houses with you, I'd love to get away from this cold.
Alas we have no snow at the moment (ok we had a sprinkling)
It's great being able to sit looking out the window with a scotch in your hand staring out as the snow falls My bed is next to my window and radiator so it's perfect.
Also when it snowed earlier in the year me and my mates went up one of treacherous mountains not too far away and one of our mates decided he'd try hitchiking... Naked.
Sod it, might go for a blaze soon. Waiting for the housemates to go to bed...or fuck off
Still no snow here in the South of England. Dammit.
Snow would be great, but we usually don't get any until around February-April. It snowed in May a couple years ago, which is by far one of the stupidest things I've ever witnessed.
I've been considering moving up to Alaska in the next few years, I am not looking forward to having to acclimate myself to that much cold. I love a good 105 degree day with low humidity and a blazing hot, cloudless sky. It's hot as fuck but it's not humid, so you sweat buckets. If there's a small breeze going it's amazing, but you have to watch your hydration.
It's good for your body too. If you're a normal person with a normal diet, you eat various processed foods. Along with that comes a lot of sodium, which disperses in your body and causes water retention (and raises your blood pressure!). The best way to get rid of the excess sodium is to sweat it out while drinking lots of clean water. A lot of people go to saunas for this reason, though I've found it's more enjoyable to be outside in the nice weather than in a humid box.
Damn I got pretty far off topic.
First snow came about a week ago, which was nice; blanketting all in calmness; crunching beneath your feet and creating a nonchalant allure to surrounding life.
Then the tempurature rises, and the fucker melts; turning everything into a sludgy mess. The cities here are extremely dirty, the drainage is awful, and there are potholes everywhere so it's impossible to walk from A to B without your trousers getting filthy.
And it's only fucking November....
Just took a look at the weather and by Thursday it'll be dropping to -25C. I dread to think how low it'll drop by the midst of winter. There's been talk of a -45C arriving, giving the extremely hot summer we had here, but I guess I'll have to wait and see.
I just want to hibernate in my flat with a cute Russian girl, tonnes of DVDs and a stockpile of food.
COME FORTH, BLIZZARD!

I was outside with my chainsaw for 3 days after that ...Plenty of firewood for summer parties. I think we got around 25-30 inches that time.
I just got new tires on my Envoy, so I'm looking forward to some heavy snow this year.
I think it was like, -20C in Wales, wasn't it?
in some parts i heard so, but where i am its only been like -2
