I don't mind getting up in the dark, it's going home that I hate. One of the reasons I work 6am to 3pm, the other being the amount I can get done when the place is empty.
We will be spending this half-term, some of Xmas, February and Easter in the Algarve and next winter, I'll no longer be tied to school holidays, so we will be migrating south for the duration :) It can still get pretty cold at night in Portugal but most days it's warm enough for shorts.
Bring on the snow! I much prefer cold to hot - you can do something about being cold, and I seem to have antifreeze in the blood anyway, so it doesn't bother me that much!
Iceland, Finland, & Greenland
I hate getting up in the dark, leaving for work in the gloom, and getting home in the dark. I also HATE scrapping the car window, only to find it frozen on the inside too. (and then finding clowns on the road who have cleared neither).
I like crisp clear mornings when I don't have to piddle about with scrapers!
