WEEKEND ASSIGNMENT #178: Cool Places

Weekend Assignment #178 from John : It's hot. Everywhere. Really hot. Counteract it with a cool and refreshing photo or story of winter. Yes, we've done something like this before. And, if you recall, it worked. Also, it's easy and it's too hot to do anything complicated. So let's do it again (just, you know, don't reuse stuff that you've already posted along this line before).

Extra Credit: Would you rather be too hot or too cold?

Here's my pictures; snow, snow and more snow. EXTRA CREDIT:  I would rather be cold because you can always crawl in bed & turn up the electric blanket or put more wood in the wood store.  Hardly anybody here in the Pacific Northwest has A/C in their houses because we just have a few months of warm weather and it rarely gets about 90* or so.  So we have fans, fans everywhere, in every room of the house.  I even have a summer fan in my electric forced air furnace, when I turn it on air (not necessarily real cool air however) comes out of all the floor registers.  It at least helps move the air around in each room of the house.

Now this is what I would love to see outside of my window right now.  It is so hot, I can't even stand the thought of going outside anymore.

That is a beautiful picture ~ and I would rather have it cold as you say you can turn the heating up or put on extra clothes ~ Ally x

Lovely picture!  I'd rather be cold too, coz if you are cold you can put on an extra sweater or something or pull up next to the fire.  If you are too hot, you could take off all your clothes and you'd still be too dang hot!  What's left?  sitting in a tub of ice?? I don't think so!

As hot as it is here right now the picture you have is looking good, but overall I don't like winter.
