Not a problem!

We enjoy all the seasons. When the days are short we have the nightlife to enjoy.
Life is great wether the days are short or long, the main thing is to be above the grass roots instead of below them.
I love Florida during the winter.

It seems to get lighter earlier in the morning at Donna's than it does here. Not fair!

When we were up in Calgary for Kuki's son's Bar Mitzvah, one June, It so amazed me that at almost midnight it was still light out!

One January in Florida, it was just dusk at almost 6pm....thought, back home it was pitch black....

I hate the shorter days....

Although shorter days means that we store less with our solar panels, it does mean that our cruise is getting closer!!!!

and to compensate for the shorter days we get longer nights

Now if you really want to upset me, then remind me that in January all the ships leave British waters so we don't get to see or hear them for 3 months

Cool

As the weather gets colder cruising starts to look better and better.

Let the Caribbean or even Mexico look good.
