You can get special lights that imitate the sun- and they really work. People with Seasonal Affected Disorder (SAD) use them to keep from getting depressed in the winter. You just sit in front of the thing for 15 minutes a day and it will chase all your blues away.

We have one of those lights, GW. Mr B and my oldest daughter both struggle with SAD. I noticed he hauled it out of the basement recently. He must be feeling the effects of the short days. Hell, I'm feeling the effects of all this cloudiness and I don't suffer with it. I think I'll go sit at his desk for a while.

Sound like you're in danger of terminal mildew setting in.

17 days? I laugh at your 17 days....and raise you another 17! Live on the west coast here, and you'll learn about manly type rain.

Check out this forecast for my area:

I wouldn't know.

I seriously consider getting one of those lamps every winter... maybe the time has come.

I have to get to the Franklin Park Conservatory, that's what always cheered me up in mpls and madison when I reached this point. Stepping into humid tropical paradise, even if it's overcast.

There's strange yellow light in the sky!!!
Could it be? It is!
THE SUN!

Dammit, I was hoping for snow squalls to welcome the Jacksonville Jaguars to Massachusetts.

Don't I know it, JP. I was in Milwaukee for the holidays, for three weeks, and I saw the sun for maybe 5 minutes. When I first got back I loved it, made me feel at home. Then after a week I felt sluggish and depressed for no reason.

Ahh, it's good to be back in Dixie, with the sun shining throuh my window as I write.

Yee-haw!

We had the sun break through for a little bit, like an hour or two, just before it went down -- not much, but still quite restorative!

My cousin in Florida is badgering me about coming to visit, that's a whole 'nother level of restoration... ocean, ahhh...

Damned if I can remember. I haven't seen hide or hair of it since the first week of December! Shocked

I saw the sun for an entire three hours today.

My urge to kill has temporarily subsided.

It almost seemed like a vacation. I was working in the western suburbs when I walked out of a house and saw the sun, I went right back in and told my partner to come outside. We were in a great mood the rest of the day.

It took a few days but the sun finally made it here... now I just need to find an excuse to leave work a little early so that I can enjoy it. You're the best Swipmy.
