Hey kids,

Winter is starting here, and with it comes the traditional winter "blahs"...that is for those folks such as myself to don't like the -30C temperatures, snow, ice and the "fun" associated with it. So what do you do over the winter to beat the blahs? This question is directed to those unfortunate enough to have to suffer through these cold months without the possibility of a southern dash to warmer climates!

Winter thus far is driving me crazy, as I took my first freediving course in late October, and want to get back in the water ASAP. That, coupled with the fact I'm a cold water wuss, is going to make for a long winter!

Hi Bolts
Friends of mine that have travelled to Canada absolutely loved it, so I reckon the opposite would apply.
Come over here for a nice long holiday.

Hey, I've TRIED to like winter, I really have. The ice, the snow, I've given it a try. It's just not my thing. Probably the limb-numbing cold despite numerous layers of clothing that turns me off of it.

For years I've had to endure them also. No more, Finally making the jump to Florida in March. I wish there were places like aquairiums that would allow divers to come and explore under supervised conditions. I feel if done preperly, things would be great. landlocked people could discover what we've known all along... fear not...first day of spring is but 100 days away!

Being slightly affected by SAD, I daily give thanks that I don't live any farther north than I do. Probably would be headed out for a deliberate SWB if I was where you are. I, too, took a free-dive course had haven't made it out to the briney yet and to make things worse, yesterday the weather was beautiful! Fudge! Oh well, the year will turn, my blahs will leave and maybe sometime in the spring I'll nail my first fish up close and personal.
