How does the weather effect you, your mood or life?

Now that winter is on it's way, the days are getting shorter and dipping below freezing at night here in Alberta. I really hate the whole idea of it, and can't wait to get out of here. I'm moving as soon as I get this house done and sold to southern British Columbia where the temps are much more moderate and winter is a lot shorter.
The last two weeks have been nothing but high winds, cool weather with a bit of rain mixed in just to add to the misery. Today the wind is gusting to over 60 mph again and makes it difficult to do anything outdoors, and not enjoyable in the slightest, and it's only going to get worse!

I find myself getting a bit depressed and slightly miserable at this time of year and it only gets worse as it gets colder, snows and stays for up to 8 months of the year. WTF ever possessed anyone to actually live in such climes and make it their home?laugh

Might have to take a trip somewhere warm and sunny this winter, like Ireland.laugh

Weather on a constant affects my moods. When it is rainy and dreary out I often ache or feel exhausted and know that a strong storm is coming from the smell in the air. Also, weather affects the sinuses to many as well. Each time the seasons change, I either sneeze more or less frequently due to the moisture within it. I enjoy the changing of seasons. For some like me, I am able to get out and work outdoors doing things I probably never could like that of faint rain blah days. My body seems to function better in thinking too when its sunny as well. I have more imagination and my cognitive skills that show to my advantage.

winter= Enjoys the white stuff on the ground and what hits the face. This also includes snowfights and sledding trips that are a blast since it keeps my son active and not always inside to be couch potatato. The downside, all the shoveling that can cause heart attacks and sore muscles.
Spring=The rejuvinating period of seeing the flowers bloom, the smell of fresh grass being cut, the slight showers that often come down like that of a light bath.
Summer=Happy and more energetic days, being able to excersise more frequently. I play sports, go swimming.
Fall=Often dreary but watching the leaves change is like reflecting on your soul through its gradual aging process.

Well, it's 81 here today (27) and the weather/temp is pretty much the same here year round so my miserable personality is all my own fault. laugh

I used to enjoy winter activities like cross country skiing and snowshoeing, but now I don't seem to want to go outside at all once the snow hits the ground and stays. sigh
Shovelling snow suckslaugh I have a snowblower!

The aches and pains from changing weather are very familiar. I've broken a few bones and feel the cold more and more every year. Great fun growing old.laugh

Personally, I hate the heat and humidity of the south, which is why I moved north. I can handle the cold much better than the heat.

However, the cold does affect me physically. Like an old person, I feel it in my bones from all of the spinal operations I've had.

I can always add more clothes, but in the heat of the south, there is only so much you can take off without being arrested.

I used to look forward to the change of seasons.
Winter was the time to get out in the hills, ice axe,
crampons at the ready.
Summer months used to be spent on the rock, climbing
long routes well into the warm evening's daylight.
These joys seem to be a thing of the past. The last
two years, at least have seen the seasons almost
merge into one, this summer in particular has been
so wet I think I might take up canoeing.
As for winter sports, might as well forget it.blues

Maybe next year will be bettergrin

wave I am someone who likes the cold a lot better then hot,humid weather.
This winter I will probably miss the snow again.I did live in Indiana,US for some jears and loved the winters there.Here in Germany it bareley even snows anymore in wintertime.
But I can understand if you feel depressed in those long Winters.I guess we all get a bit like that during the dark,cloudy months.

I finding winter a bit depressing as well, Kid. The monotonous white and the days of blasting wind and far-subzero temps compel me to spend more time in my gym cheering myself up playing with my weights (toward the end of winter, all the weights have namessigh dunno)wave comfort handshake

I have found that any sort of physical activity does help to lighten the mood a little. Unfortunately this house is too small for me to set up any sort of a gym in, unless I leave the furniture outside.laugh

I imagine SD isn't a whole lot warmer during the winter than it is here, but slightly shorter winters and a tad milder. I've been through there a couple times during the winter but maybe I just lucked into good weather on my way through.
