It hasn't been too cold here, save for a couple of spells, but it hasn't stopped winter being a thoroughgoing bore.
I look forward to Dec 21st every year but even that landmark doesn't dull the pain that January and February often bring.
I suspect that I might be allergic to winter.

Trivial by comparison. Back in the 50s and 60s, lakes and rivers would routinely freeze. Back then, everyone had ice skates. Chunks of ice were often seen in the Hudson River. They built a bridge from Manhattan to Brooklyn because ice would routinely separate the two. Today's winters are topical by comparison.

We had multiple consecutive days when it went below -18 degrees C. In the spring, we found frost even two feet underground. And that was not even in cold environments such a Maine or NY State. Back then we really had winters.

Do you feel warmer now?

Everyone talks about it and it still does not change. Sounds like politics to me.
