I love jacket weather, but winter takes it too far. Taking walks with a cool breeze blowing, and leaves falling around me has always helped me clear my mind and put things into perspective. There's also something haunting and poetic about leaves taking on such vibrant colors before they die. Nature's swan song.
I prefer spring, the smell of melting snow, wet soil, new buds - it makes me feel so much alive and real and ready for whatever. And it is so much better to take off clothes than to put them on :crazy:
Winter, I love the cold and going to a park and no one is there. It feels cleaner. The flies and mosquitos are dead. Baking and cooking is more fun because your not heating up your house just to cool it down again.
I love the cooler weather and all the stuff that comes with it when you're surrounded by farmland: fresh picked apples and pumpkins, the last mowing of a hayfield, frost and fog clinging to auburn pastures. Last night I savored a glass of fresh apple cider, mulled with cinnamon and cloves. Heaven!
The only thing that makes winter bearable where I live (Kansas) is that the winter wheat starts coming up just as I'm getting sick to death of winter weather. I hate the cold - it seeps into my bones and settles there. I love how in spring everything comes to life and there are thunderstorms - there are few sensations I love more than a good thunderstorm.
