Don't move

The heat reminds me why I love the cold. The cold rewards activity; it's an obstacle it feels good to overcome. Heat punishes. Get out of the sun, it says. Go back inside. There's nothing you can do out here.

I'v also always adhered to the "you can always put more clothes on, but you can only take so many off" selling point of winter. Or was that a line I used when I was younger?

Heh. A certain amount of warmth — enough to encourage people to wear less clothing — definitely has its advantages....

Oh, you are so wrong, you Northern hemisphere types. Heat gets the blood moving and the joints swinging freely. It's cold -- miserable, begrudging, miserly cold -- that says "Stay indoors; there's no comfort out here; wrap yourself in blankets and stuff yourself with rich broths and wait for spring!"

(Yes, I'm moving to the Pacific NW next year. I plan to learn to hibernate.)

But it doesn't even get cold in the Pacific Northwest! It gets chilly at best (or worst, depending on your attitude...).
