Icy roads and increased heating bills. :flag:

I love the short days, snowstorms, the roaring fire, the quiet times ...

The possibility of water pipes freezing. It's never happened in the house I'm in now but I dread it if it ever does.

Freezing rain building up, bringing down the power lines, knocking out your electricity, and leaving you with no lights and no heat.

Everyone else getting snow while we just sit here with grey days and rain.

Oh, yeah. Most Oregon drivers are good on rainy roads, but like hogs on ice where they freeze.

My gal likes making our place into a sauna, so Pacific Power bills in mid-winter go sky high.

Me, I likes some winter now and then. So glad the earth tilts.

Wind Chill Warnings for "days" on end, which turn into weeks.

-24 C (-11F) midday "which feels like"...death.

January is lovely here, weather-wise, but it brings with it an immense amount of traffic and difficulty getting a table in a restaurant.

But if that's the worst of the January troubles... :tongue

The one thing I dislike most about January is me.
Yep. Me.

The snow started today around 11am. It's way too cold out.
The roads are covered, and this happens every year - and I still live here.

I'm an idiot. I should be smart enough to move somewhere else.

The post-holiday crankypants-ness. Myself included.

The cold, the dryness and static, and everything shocking me because of it. Usually I hate the snow, but we haven't had much, just cold, dreary, cloudy days.

January is my least favorite month!

January's alright in my books. It's not too hot yet, and I have a lot of free time.

The worst part about January is how much I love winter break and how little I want to go back and learn about organic chemistry :c

I still see carbon atoms and lewis structures in my sleep :e2cry:

Cold. Snow. Drunk driving.

In January, it should be warm and rainy here, which gets a thumbs up from me. But the first three days of the month have been record-breakingly hot and the Wet has yet to start. :(

01-03-2014, 02:54 PM
January and February blow goats. Endless grey days, cold, no sign of spring, wet...bah.

01-03-2014, 02:55 PM
My kinda weather.
Love Scotland, this time o' year.
No tourist.
No lines.
Alllllll the Yum-Yums at Greggs Bakery aren't sold out :D

Checking the weather and seeing "-2F."

01-03-2014, 03:02 PM
Hmmm, so far, January has been so cold they've issued warnings about working outside and keeping pets in. The cat has taken to sleeping on top of my head at night.

01-03-2014, 04:17 PM
I hate the grim, post-holidays feeling that comes at the first of the year. It's kind of that stark reality of the restart kicking in.

01-03-2014, 05:40 PM
The weather, oh boy do I hate it right now. This is the coldest it's been in a long time. With windchill the RealFeel is -18F right now, and it's only going to get colder. Ugh. The half a foot or so of new snow isn't helping any either.
