I spent a year in Rochester NY one winter weekend.

'Gloom and doom' are partners for a reason.

Would I rather apply sunscreen than buckle up boots?

Would I rather put on a wind breaker or the Michelin coat?

Yes I am afffected by weather, but the work still gets done.

I love a sunny day but I know we need the rain -- I sometimes wish it would only rain while I was indoors.

I've traveled to Washington several times in the past and it only rained once while I was there. If you want to know what the true color of green is go to Washington State.

Yes, I am very much affected by Vitamin D or lack of. I think that the clinical term is SADD, and I have it. 

To combat, I have a special lamp to deal with it that I have on my desk for 40 minute sessions. I also have a sunroof, and I use it when in the car!

Paul, Floridians get a little moody when they haven't seen the sun in more than one or two days. Thankfully, that's rare.

I much prefer sun and we get quite a bit of it here in the Charlotte area. We had 10 days of rain and overcast and it was getting old, let me tell you. I know a lot of people who moved here from the mid-west and when they go back for holidays or visits especially in winter, they come back saying they got depressed due to lack of sunshine.

I am 100% better in pure sunshine-that is why I moved to the sunshine state. This weather pattern since Sept has been anything but and I am about to pull my hair out. We are supposed to be in the dry season which means no rain no humidity brilliant sunshine moderate temps. We have been experiencing days on end of thick gloomy skies with constant rain.

Paul and Ken Jones there is a medical term "Seasonal Affected Disorder" (or SAD for short).  It is a condition where the lack of sunlight creates a depressed mood in the subject.  It is very common in Alaska, where it can be dark for months at a time.  Full spectrum lighting is used to combat this.


For me, a few days of gloom isn't bad but I wouldn't want to be in a place where it was cloudy/gloomy/rainy most of the time.

In Texas we don't get much of the nice weather.  I make the best of what the day brings. Rainy days are great for indoor / online work..sunshine makes me happy. Cold and windy I don't care for.  Yes, the weather makes a difference.

If I were in your area I would buy lots of cute rain gear and get busy.

I moved across the country to Southern California for that very reason.  I don't function well in dark, cold, wet winters.  As an added bonus, since it rains so sparsely here, I've come to love the rain & snow.
