That's my ultimate goal, just to avoid our summers. I diagnosed myself this
summer with a new disorder, SSAD or Summer Seasonal Affective Disorder
whereby it's too hot to get off the couch.

Live in summer in one place and somewhere else in the winter.

Living where I do there is rarely a shortage of sunshine but I have 
started to wonder if I would be susceptible to SAD. In five or six years 
husband and I are going to retire and we are not planning on staying 
here. I originally started looking at property in climates very similar 
to this. Then one day I was online looking at a place that met about 
every criteria I wanted, set in high desert country just like here, and 
out of nowhere I thought "I can't look at this scenery for the rest of 
my life." That was startling. I don't know if the feeling will last, but 
it was kind of an "uh-oh" moment. 
If I didn't want to get out of California it would be easier, but now 
I'm trying to figure out a place to live where 1) we don't need a snow 
shovel but 2) It isn't a million degrees all summer and 3) it's still 
within a couple days drive of our family here. I started looking at the 
Rogue River valley in Oregon, I read it's supposed to be as sunny as 
Oregon can get, but I don't know...my little online weather gadget has 
shown me clouds for the last week there. I remember spending two weeks 
near St Louis in November - cold, completely overcast and drizzly. I 
don't know if I could stand a whole winter like that.

Very definitely I have SAD. I guess it helps to know that I'm not the 
only one who reacts this way. I have tried the lamps with minor 
success. I find that hours in front of a bright computer screen has 
more benefit than any of the lamps I have tried. Even so, I still hate 
the short afternoons.

Do you have SAD? I know people with this and the dark really bothers 
them. 
We only have a couple of months before more light. :)

Bonnie, it's not "winter" that makes me depressed - it's the dark 
at 4:00 in the afternoon. I don't really mind the cold weather. I 
do enjoy settling in by the fire in the evening, even if hauling in the 
wood makes my sciatica worse. I think a snow-covered landscape 
is lovely. It's just that early dark at the time I am getting ready to 
wind up the day's work and have some free time that depresses me. 
And, I must admit, that with my Florida-panhandle background, I am 
ready for spring to begin by the middle of February. Enough is enough.

Sorry winter makes you depressed. To me, I just want to go inside, get a 

nice hot dinner and settle down to a good book or quilting, and/or watch 

a good program. Maybe, I am part bear and want to hibernate.
