I've never been one to specifically "hate" one season or another. I also really do not fall into having the typical seasonal depression. I love winter. Not for Christmas or being just the "holiday season"; I love the darkness early in the evening, the ice in the trees and how there is always, at least for a few days during the whole season after a blizzard or ice storm, pure calm. No body is driving or walking around, every body stays indoors and the city just feels at peace for awhile. I love it. I think I will call it from now on; my Winter Daze.
