We either love or hate winter. Gray days, cold weather, rain, snow, ice, nightfall at 5:00pm... Winter can certainly slow life down! On the plus side, kids can play in the snow, winter sports fans will head to the slopes and the landscapes can be stunning. So, even if you despise the colder months, there can be a positive side.
