Aside from being dark all the time and never seeing any sun, having to get up 20 minutes early to scrape all the snow and ice off your car, and wind chills causing the weather to drop into sub-degree temps, there is a plus side to winter. And that would be people finding more creative ways to hurt, injure, maim, or kill themselves. Example, this schlub who decides to go skiing with a kite wing. In his defense though, when they started out, I'm sure it look good on paper.
