nonourban areasyesWhen I lived in Ohio, I would get seasonal depression during the winter.

yesMy problem with winter particularly in NEO, is the lack of sunlight. Gray days & early sunsets are the depressing. I also dislike the wind in winter. Other than that, I really don't mind

1/5/2015 21:37:01femalePublic transportationyesThe most annoying part about winter is the difference between outdoor and indoor conditions. This involves taking a jacket indoors, getting salt and snow on your shoes and bringing it inside,and having uncomfortably warm feet all day or bringing a change of shoes.yesyesurban areasyesAfter getting a really good jacket and moving closer to my school I don't mind winter. My city has an amazing winter spirit so I like spending time outside, although I am unable to bike to school so my fitness level has gone down. 2 -5 hoursbikeSnow boots, thermal leggings, sweaters, cross country and downhill skis, ice skates, extra footwear for indoors, noI live in the 2nd coldest capital city in the world, it's -15 F right now, and there's a whole load of snow in the forecast. However, with the right clothes and preparation it's not hard to have fun in winter, although I really would like to be somewhere else right now.noAt the moment I actually want it to snow more and get colder so there's a good amount of snow and the canal freezes. This means I'll get to skate and cross country ski around the city. I believe that winter is only worthwhile if there's frozen water and thick snow, otherwise it's just inconvenient.
1/5/2015 21:41:17femaleCarnoI am not a fan. It is pretty and love watching the snow fall but hate actually venturing out into it unless I am going out to play with the kids and it is a snowy yet calm, sunny daynonosuburbiayesDon't want to go out and socialize. More time in van waiting for buses, driving kids places. More anxiety commuting on rural roads so limit heading to our house and stay In the city.

1/5/2015 22:43:04femaleCarnoI think the general cold and lack of sunlight has a greater effect on my opinion than the products. However if there were products that made being outdoor more tolerable (staying warmer) and fun I may spend more time outdoorsnoyesurban areas, suburbiayesSubstantially harder to get up in the morning.
