    It's that time of year again... the days are shorter, darker, and we're transitioning from chilly, Fall days to cold, wet, snowy Winter days.

    I know today was the first day I woke up with snow on the ground that looks like it's going to hang around for a while.


    FOCUS: Does your winter routine change from your fall routine? As the weather transitions, how do you transition?

    It usually takes me a few weeks to find my nice gloves shoved in the pocket of a random jacket. Somehow I'll have moved my ice scraper out of my car during the summer and that too takes a while for me to get in order.

    My least favorite part of winter is how the other people in the office can tell that you came in late or are leaving early because you are wearing your coat.

    The worst part of winter is the entirety of it. Cold, filthy, dark and dangerous. A perfect 0/10.

    The only redeeming quality that it has is the fact that it eventually ends, only to come back 8 months later, Jason-like.

    I don't mind winter, I just hate clouds.I need sunshine, everyone needs that, it is a big reason why Colorado is so amazing. Currently in Minneapolis we're going on three days without seeing the sun once and I'm starting to doubt it exists anymore. Consecutive cloudy days is the main reason I hated michigan winters. It seemed like from Februrary through May the sun just disappeared.

    On the plus side, the clouds and cold hasn't deterred some undergrads from wearing yoga pants.

    My ideal winter retreat: Steamboat or Telluride. When I think winter retreat I think mountains, snow and sun.

    Yoga pants have made winter much more tolerable. It wasn't until the tail end of going to college that it really took off around here. Before that it was drab sweat pants and uggs. The human equivalent of the grey sludge created by roads and snow.

    Have women in the vast majority of the country just stopped wearing jeans?

    Being raised in Florida, anything below 70* is freezing. I now live in the arctic tundra that is Sacramento. Highs in the 50's might as well be Siberia to me.

    It's December 2nd and I am 100% over this shit already. I was in St Marteen last year where the high was 82* and the low was 78* virtually every day. I was in heaven.

    The only thing I really hate about this weather transition is that people in my city (I doubt it's limited to here) cannot fucking drive when it's anything other than perfect conditions. Today it was slightly above freezing, and drizzling. So slick roads and apparently no one has any fucking clue what to do.

    I was merging onto the highway and the box truck in front of me spun out by himself, he over corrected, I could see him turning in the wrong direction, so of course he flipped over. I had a safe following distance so I pulled over into the median and avoided the big chunk of metal that flew off when he tipped.

    The mustang behind me, did not have a safe following distance, and got a windshield full of that metal.

    Fortunately the guy in the truck was basically ok. A bunch of people stopped and ran to him but no one thought to call 911, because of course, fucking idiots. So I pointed to the one lady who wasn't doing shit but basically watching and told her to call while I wrapped the wounds of the driver who had a bunch of glass and shit in his arm.

    Yoga pants are stretchy. I've never heard a woman say, "ugh, I can never find a pair of yoga pants that fit right" like they do with jeans. I like women in jeans, though. But, then I'm old. They make jeggings, do they make jogas?

    I'm in Boulder right now. The women don't wear jeans and there's no black people. The women wear these amazing leggings that can't possibly keep them warm.

    I was only there for a little bit. Reminded me of Austin a little but the houses were in better shape. Too bad the place is obscenely expensive.

    The fucking desert. I hate the fucking desert.
    It turned chilly here this week (Mid 30's in the morning.) My truck makes horrifying noises when it goes below 40. Logically, I know it's the pulleys protesting being forced to work, but my brain hears my truck whistling, groaning, and screeching like a wounded elk and just waits for the whole thing to explode.

    I'd hate to think what my poor truck would do in actual cold weather.
