I live in suburban Philadelphia. We are FINALLY having temperatures that make sense for fall and the daylight hours are decreasing.
The approach to winter is a challenging one for me because I do think that the lack of sunlight and the cold weather affect my mood pretty significantly. My coworkers were surprised to hear me complain because I’m from Minnesota. Minnesota has a reputation for its winters. I’ve actually been able to convince more than one person, without too much effort, that it snows all year there.
You do know that’s not true, right?
The point here is that being from Minnesota, the Philadelphia winters should be a piece of cake to survive. The fact of the matter is that they are if you just look at the temperature.
