Why Winter Is Better in Ocean County

Today is the kind of day that makes one question why they live here, especially if you could be in Florida or another warm-weather location.

However there are so many advantages to days spent in the single digits and this morning I present my list of the “Top 10 reasons why winter is better in Ocean County than….you fill in the location.”

#1      You don’t have to worry about stepping in puddles because any standing water   is frozen.

#2      You can wear an ugly wool hat or even a Ushanka and get away with it. For those not as worldly as me a Ushanka is that traditional Russian hat with the ear flaps.  Honestly if it was a 100 below zero I wouldn’t get caught dead in one.

#3      It’s acceptable to walk around your house in that snuggy you got for Christmas from a relative who really doesn’t like you very much.  However there is an exception to the rule…it is never acceptable to wear the camouflage snuggy unless you live in a state that is still upset the North won the Civil War.

#4      You will have no trouble finding a parking spot at the beach.

#5      No deodorant…no problem.  You can’t sweat anyway.

#6      You don’t have to worry about insects…they’re all dead.

#7      No need to worry about sunburn.

#8      OK so your car is cold when you first get in.  But that’s better than feeling like you’re boiling after it was sitting in the sun all day.

#9      Let’s be honest.  When you tell your significant other that it’s important to stay close to one another in bed you have a better shot of that going somewhere when it’s really cold outside.  Just sayin’

#10    It’s easier to cover the weight you gained over the holidays.
