50 shades of grey

I confess this weather is killing me. I can't wake up in the mornings. I am a zombie at work. The endless grey skies and grey days just blend into a concrete coloured nightmare. I'll try and do a lunchtime workout and it temporarily lifts my energy. But then I slip into grey blahness on the commute home in my bulky coat and winter boots. Get me the eff to California, or Thailand or the Gold Coast. I look at swimsuit pictures, flower farm pictures, beach pictures and dream of colour and warmth again. Obviously I'm not a good Canadian. I don't even want to drink; I just want to shed my itchy bulky winter clothes and lie on a sun-warmed rock with lizards and listen to the wind rustle through the trees. This is probably the most grossest February ever.

Winter sports make it more fun

There's a winter wonderland out there, but most people don't know because they never leave the city.
Skiing and snowshoeing make it so much fun for me and I sometimes don't want for winter to end.
Besides, I get some vitamin D from spending entire days in the alpine.

Max your vitamin D intake and get a full spectrum bulb to stare at every morning. That'll do until Spring.

you could be thankful that you don't live near Sacramento California and get to walk out your door into 9 feet (yes, 108 inches) of snow.

I head to the local pools all winter at night to stay warm and have the bright lights
