Today here in Greenwood, MS is actually nice.
It's the up and down yo-yo temperatures that get me.
Cold. Hot. Cold. Hot.
All in the same week...
Will be 73 tomorrow, but then will only get into the 40's and 50's for 2 weeks after that.
Just as 100% humidity here makes the heat feel worse, it also makes the cold feel worse- like it bites into your bones and joints.
An overcast, drizzly day is the worst.
Overcast days in the 50's and 60's seem to never really be warm.
Sunshine makes all the difference, but is rare this time of year here.

Today is winter solstice, though.
Each day will get a minute and a half longer till we are camping again in March and daylight savings time causes an extra hour of daylight in the evenings...
I think the holidays were designed at this time of year to help us through the winter blahs.
At least 6 camping trips for 2018 already planned...
Quit yer bitchin, it is 10 degrees with 4” of snow here...and goin to get colder with more sno commin...

Bitchin' about the weather is a God-given right of every Airstreamer who isn't able to enjoy the weather with his or her Airstream. Doesn't matter if the temperature is 8° or 80°, sunshine, rain, or snow, if you ain't Airstreaming, the weather is horrible. If you are Airstreraming, then the weather is just fine (though even then sometimes it could be better…).

Well, I have a little roomatism, but at least its from home. The good thing about working from home is avoiding the dark drive to work and then back home in the dark. When the rommatism gets too bad, I just throw on my winter weather gear and take the dog for a walk in the mountains. The comparison makes the home feel real toasty!

My point is...
This weather is just as miserable for us as your 10 degrees and snow is to you.
You quite possibly don't have the bone aching 100% humidity.
Every temperature above 75 is hot.
Every temperature below 65 is cold.
We seldom see temperatures from 65 to 75...
We spend a lot of time waiting...
Waiting for it to get warm enough...
Waiting for it to get cool enough...
Waiting for the days to get longer...
Waiting for it to quit raining...
That shed won't never git cleaned out...

I started working outdoors, when I was 6 years old, helping my dad sort pop bottles out of the snow. I have worked outdoors, as a service station flunky/owner/mechanic since spending a year in the weather of "beautiful" Vietnam. I can justifiably say I HATE wintertime. In the summer, if you get too hot, you can always remove clothing, go to the nearest water hose or mud hole and cool off, if you get too cold, you remain too cold. If it's too cold to camp, ride motorcycles, and play golf, count me out and headed south!

I worked outside for many years up until I got a job in the front office.
I still have to go outside from time to time...

I'm laughing so hard because I get it! Woke up this AM complaining that it's December & we still have the AC on here on the coast of FL. Went out this afternoon and came home saying it's just too hot to be out shopping. Changed into swimming attire, then had a nice lunch and sat down outside in the cabana all ceiling fans whizzing away and watching the robot clean the pool and now "waiting" for a gorgeous winter solstice sunset on the beach from our back yard!

We're never satisfied with what we have, are we? Thanks for the perspective. No complaints here...although I wouldn't mind a cool, dry Christmas or maybe even a snowy week or two in MN or MT. 🤔

Merry Christmas to all 🎄

Some of us miss the snow!

Grass is always greener... or snow whiter! My usually ladylike daughter calls FL "Satan's ass crack" - we are ready to depart this hot, humid place once our commitments are fulfilled! Hang in there with the roomatism- v cute way to put it! Music helps my mood- that, and podcasts like The Minimalists.

Roomatism.....cute.

Like iaqstuff, I left the cold environs (Michigan for me) after Christmas in 1974. Was back for International this past year, and what may be covered in darkness and snow this time of year, is truly splendid in the other 3 seasons (maybe 2 1/2 depending on winter length). As others have said, the days start getting longer now, so start planning those trips!

Roomatism cure - take one part green tree, two parts lighting, three parts bangles, four parts beads, five parts wrapped packages and add six parts of holiday movies. Mix well with a reasonable quantity of adult beaverage, eggnog, or hot chocolate. Add a good portion of smiles from the previous trip pictures, future trip planning, and the adventures that the good folks here post.

You all can help a bit by sharing your roomatism cures. Brother put together a propane fire ring for the deck. Seems they talked a lot last night and felt no cold at all.

Happy Holidays. Pat

Here comes Mr. Freeze.
My plan is to be in the house by about 5:15 and stay there till tomorrow.

We also wouldn't mind a snowy week somewhere... But of course I want the snowy week on the postcards on the postcards.

The kind you don't have to shovel the kind that doesn't get you cold the kind that isn't wet, yada yada yada.

Granny Clampett had just the thing for the roomatizz. A shot of her roomatizz medicine might not be a cure but it makes it easier to live with.
