Winter sucks everywhere. Sure, the bugs have finally frozen over and you can finally break out that coat you like, but it's cold, you're always late because your car won't defrost in time, and no one seems to remember to tap their brakes when stopping at intersections.
But, as any optimist might tell you, things can always get worse! While it sucks for us up here in the middle of December, it's actually the nicest time to be in Antarctica — nice by Antarctic standards anyway.
It doesn't last, though, as the winters there begin in mid-February and don't let up until mid-November. And don't forget, we have brothers and sisters in the U.S. Armed Forces down there embracing the suck of the coldest temperatures on Earth.
