Hot Vs. Cold

Winter or summer?
I hate winter. Yeah, I snowboard, but winter gets boring! You look out the window every morning, and it's the same thing every morning. White. Boring brown trees with no color, whit snow all over the ground. Nothing else! And it's COLD. I hate cold! And I get so sick of winter, about half way through. On the other hand...
I'm definitely a summer person. I love everything about summer time, and I never get sick of it. I'm the type of person who likes being outside (preferably at the barn!) on those days that are 95 degrees+, and won't be complaining about the heat. I just love HOT!
What do you prefer and why??

I hate summer. It's hot, humid, and I have to shave my legs every day.

Winter is bliss. I love the cold. It makes me feel energetic and alive. Something about cold air stinging my lungs makes me want to go for a long run. During the winter, I'm always outside. I never, ever wear long sleeves; I run around in yoga pants and a tee shirt. I always find myself dreading the long, hot months of summer, when I vegetate inside in the air conditioner until winter comes back.

In general, I prefer hot over cold. But when talking about weather, I think winter and summer are pretty equal in my mind, even I've at least earlier preferred winter over summer.

I don't like if it's freaking cold but I love snow, especially subzero snow. It's so clean and pure white, makes whole the landscape look so harmonic and clean and brings a little light in a dark season. Zero or a bit over zero snow is fun, you can be artistic and create all kind of structures from it . Even very wet, melting snow is pretty icky.

I love how you don't need to wear that much in summertime, even it isn't nice if it's too hot like this summer has been. I also love how everything around you blossoms and there are so much colors in nature.

So, even I think a hot sauna is better than staying in a freezer, I think both goes when talking about weather. If that doesn't turn too extremely cold or hot.

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

Haha yeah, two of my friends like the winter better, because they say they have more energy! I never have much energy in the winter to do anything. :P

Where I live there are long "in-between" seasons and mild winters, so the only dreadful months are July and August because of the heat. I hate cold weather. Going out in cold weather is so complicated with all the extra clothing. I get claustrophobia having to stay inside because of weather on the cold winter days. In the hot summer months I go out riding in the early morning and it's great, especially if there is a breeze or wind.

I hate the heat. Hate it. Summers around here always trick you into believing 'oh come june...were gonna be riding EVERY DAY'...then june hits and is 90 with 90%humidity. I rode more during the winter than I did this summer. Not only that...i am super white and get sunburned really easily. I actually got 2nd degree sunburns this year and am still shedding out my last burn. I wear SPF but sometimes, its just not enough!

I'd take winter over summer anyday because I really detest the heat and I also get pretty bad headaches. I dont really know which season I like riding better in because in the summer while my horse and I are always dripping with sweat after working, as a result we both build great muscle, and in the winter even though overall its more comftrable, it seems like we both put on a layer of fat lol
