Life is Work in USA in Winter This is the first time I have been in the USA during winter in years; I do my best to avoid winter. There is no advantage to winter, it just make life feel more difficult.
It feels like work to leave the home when it is cold.
On the other hand, walking down the sidewalk in my cities in the world is severe work and hassles.
I the USA I have fewer hassles, fewer daily annoyances, I have nobody here telling me lies, nobody here trying to cheat, and for sure there are no beggars in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
There is something about winters that change cultures, I am positive the rich and prosperous cultures exist where the weather is more harsh and difficult. I will be happy to leave for Panajachel, Guatemala where life is exceptionally good and free of the majority of daily hassles.
