I appreciate and enjoy wintertime and its accompanying shorter days, greyness, colder temps, and storms. But one thing I can't comfortably tolerate is a winter environment where everything is brown and white, and virtually every tree appears dead. That's why I'm happy to live in the Pacific Northwest, and to visit winter landscapes dominated by evergreens.
