We have been lucky during much of the winter (winter unofficially starts here between October 15th and November 1st) with unusually warm temperatures, a fair number of times hitting above freezing, and even one or two days in the 40s. So, I really should not complain. But, damn, the sudden change to "normal" winter weather (temperatures hovering around zero, with wind chills far into the negative digits) has made me a bit ornery about my morning walks. I am still doing them (sans my dog... I do not take her on the 5 mile walks when it is below 10 degrees outside), but the sudden drop has not given me much chance to acclimate. But, I persevere and eventually it will get better.
