    Good/bad weather can mean a good/bad food day for me. And exercise too.

    I am happiest when there are clear warm days that are low in humidity. Ocean breezes or mountain breezes on a warm day are definitely my thing.
    The gray days of mid winter with weeks on end of no sunshine, with early morning ice fogs, and the dusty muddy streets really try me.

    Summers are much better. I like the hot weather, and I love when it stays daylight on up into the evening hours. Definately a much happier person when the days are longer.
