But while I know my disdain for this season is especially high compared to most others’, I must say I’m always stunned by how many people honestly prefer snowy, cold weather to the heat of summer, arguing that when it’s cold, you can simply put on more layers.
Me, shivering during last year's massive blizzard.
But to me, that’s a big part of the hassle, as I simply hate having to put on my coat, scarf, hat, gloves and boots before going outside, taking them all off again when I go inside, not to mention lugging them around with me all day. Plus, though summer’s storms can certainly be violent and damaging, they are typically over quickly and easy to wait out. They also don’t normally cause six-hour traffic jams and the truly treacherous conditions that left drivers cold and stranded on the side of the road during last week’s snowstorms.
What do you think? Am I truly in the minority here? Is it better to be hot in the summer or cold in the winter?
