I have lived in equal number of scorching hot places (Delhi, Dubai, Texas) as the freezing cold ones (Switzerland, London, DC). The question I am always asked is about the damn weather. "OMG! How are you surviving the heat?" OR "OMG How do you live in such cold?" And I have had the same response, " I live just fine!" It takes a little getting used to, but nothing one can't deal with. It's not like I am on the streets without a bed and a roof on my head.
I am amused when people whine about the weather conditions, excessively. I mean, you are living in a place, you know what the temperatures will be like, now buy appropriate clothes and stop bitching about it. And if it bothers you that much then move to a city which has favorable weather conditions for your lifestyle.
In fact I despise all-forms-of-whining, period. Whether it is about how much one has to walk in their city, or how their work sucks, or how much household work they have to do, or how their maid doesn't come regularly. I mean, come on. I can hear your saga once, because it might be remotely interesting or entertaining but if it is the same-whining-story day in day out, then I suggest you speak to someone else, 'coz I have not got the patience.
I do not see the point of
complainingwhining. I am someone who believes in taking action and solving the problem. And if it something that is out of my control (like the weather) then I make peace with the situation and adapt. There is no point in going on and on about it.
Unless you are stuck at home on your own birthday, then you can complain a little and then let it go ... talking of which ... this past weekend was my birthday, you already know my thoughts on it, but that is not reason to skip a good meal. Dr. Fab. has planned a lovely afternoon but the snow storm came in early and forced us to adapt. But it didn't stop us from braving it out in the snow and getting some spectacular shots. It might be cold and messy to deal with, but snow is beautiful. :)
P.S. I just realized the irony! My post is my whine about the whiners. Oh! Well. Watchya gonna do?
