6 Winter Woes Only Those From Cold Climates Can Truly Grasp


People in Florida or Texas have no idea how brutal it can be to live in colder climates during the winter. While there’s beauty in the first snowfall and excitement in skiing and snowboarding, winter also has a dark side.

People from the North shared the most terrible aspects of winter that people from the South couldn’t understand.

Cars don’t like the cold. If it’s freezing enough, car batteries can refuse to start. Plus, snow is a big problem. If you live in a city and park on the street, you’ll have to move your car every time it snows so the city can plow.

Car Troubles

Cold in the dead of winter becomes all-encompassing. When you get into bed at night, you finally feel warm again. But trying to pry yourself out of bed for a shower before work in the morning can feel like torture. One person said they sleep in many layers to make the transition more bearable. But getting out of the warm shower after is a whole other story.

Leaving Your Cozy Bed

The cold is bad enough, but when you add brisk winds to the equation, coping becomes much less bearable. No matter how many layers you pile on, the wind will cut through your clothes and leave you shivering.

Wind Is Worse Than Cold

One user’s friend from a warmer climate assumed that the cold all feels the same once it reaches zero degrees Fahrenheit. But that’s not true at all. The colder it gets, the more uncomfortable and even dangerous it becomes to spend time outside. The risk of hypothermia gets worse when it becomes colder and colder.

Whole New Level of Cold

If you think driving is difficult with snow on the ground, you may be surprised to hear that walking isn’t much more manageable. Ice and snow are slippery for both people walking and cars driving, and cause many people to fall and injure themselves.

When you go outside in the cold weather, you start to freeze. That means you can sometimes feel your moist eyelashes and nose hairs freezing together.
