Well, the holidays are over, so no more photo ops of Christmas lights(my fav type of photography). lt's getting cold here and we get much rain in the winter. We're on standard time, so it gets dark super early. No baseball season going on. Looking forward to March. Daylight saving time, baseball pre season starts, getting warmer. We have some nice weather days from March-May. By June it's so hot and muggy the A/C's are working overtime. What's the most boring time of the year where you live?

Our weather here is similar to yours lots of rain in the winter and its dark so early. For me the most boring is August in Memphis its to hot to do anything but sit inside and stay cool.

For me, October and November are the most boring months, with our October wedding anniversary and Remembrance Day being the exceptions.  In January, the days start getting longer and we look forward to Spring.  In Summer, the heat is usually quite bearable, and there is lots to do.  Then we hit the "Replay" button.  :)

James, summer is pretty much the same here. At least it gets dark late.

 

Mark, living in Canada, l'm sure the summers are bearable.

You make your point very well, Don.  :)

 

Just when I think that the weather in Vancouver is bad, someone reminds me that it is worse elsewhere.  Currently -7C at the airport.  However, with the moisture it feels like we're all in Saskatoon!  <_<

 

Like you, looking forward to Spring.   :)  :)

My sports activities have moved indoors, I like shooting all sports, but we had a team go to the state final game. I was glad football ended. I opted out of bowl games this year. That might be the plan for the future. This is the time my wife says it time to attend to the honey do list. 

Its been in the low 60˚F in TN so no complaining about the weather. (Sorry Don) We feed the birds so there are a lot of bird photo ops in back. 

If I get bored...I just take a nap. hahaha
