Pick the poison, ha. Its always a big topic in the northern tier rural zones. I had an entire UVM course around the Maine Winter Sports Center and combating lack of activity in kids (and their parents) during the darkest and coldest times of the year. Got some great trips out of that class to Fort Kent, lol. I’ve always wondered how activity levels after school and work would be if we could combine heat with low daylight. Like gets dark at 4pm but it’s still 80F at 8pm. Does that change routines of basically hibernating (especially more rural communities) during the dark time of year. ha..We're at war today, pf. I think blaming an hour time difference is an excuse; that's the part of the statement I disagree with. Eat better, make time to exercise and people will be healthier. It's probably harder during the short days in the winter, but if people just say screw it, then that's the results they'll get. Long summer days are awesome too. I guess it's just part of the change of seasons to me. And even though 12z op went warmer, I think the cold the 10th through the 15th is a bit stronger on the ensemble than the previous run. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
