    Such an Arctic Circle perspective. Well, ok, pretty much anywhere north of the Carolinas. In Florida, I LIVED for the short days and briefly cool weather.
    "Since the historic ruling, the Lovings have become icons for equality. Mildred released a statement on the 40th anniversary of the ruling in 2007: 'I am proud that Richard’s and my name is on a court case that can help reinforce the love, the commitment, the fairness, and the family that so many people, Black or white, young or old, gay or straight, seek in life. I support the freedom to marry for all. That’s what Loving, and loving, are all about.'." - Mildred Loving (Loving v. Virginia)

      Finally! It won't really warm up until April but at least the light will inch back! I always think the one in June is vaguely depressing.

        There's always Phoenix. Options.

          I've been through Arizona many times; never occurred to me to live there.

            Well, then, there must be something you hate more than long, cold nights and short, cold days. Choices.

              I'm pretty sure Americans still get to complain about their local weather. I mean eventually the Federal government will put a stop to that but we might as well enjoy the privilege while we can.

                Did I suggest otherwise? And other Americans get to comment.

                Me, I didn't like the weather where I was, so I moved. Several times.

                  Weather has never been a reason for me to move. But I live in Pennsylvania. We have all 4 seasons...some more than others, but they're always there. I wouldn't be able to handle a single season locale.
                  Not where I breathe, but where I love, I live...

                    We have three seasons: rainy, tourist and AWESOME.

                      Same here. Our Fall and Spring could be a little longer but I enjoy the four seasons also.
                      May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, the spiderlings.
                      Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
                      And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
                      may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.

                          Planting season, canning season, chicken screwing... what's the fourth season?
                          The year's at the spring
                          And day's at the morn;
                          Morning's at seven;
                          The hill-side's dew-pearled;
                          The lark's on the wing;
                          The snail's on the thorn:
                          God's in his heaven—
                          All's right with the world!
