O, wind, if winter comes, can spring be far behind? - Percy Bysshe Shelley
Psychrophilic is an adjective and pronounced: psy·chro·phil·ic \ˌsī-krō-ˈfi-lik\
One of the neatest things to do in late spring or early summer as the weather is getting hot, is hiking to the top of a mountain, and have a snowball fight. It's surreal. I love snow, but sometimes I could do without the cold. Brrrr. You do get used to it though.
Oh well. The cold weather is perfect to sit by a nice fire, and read a good book or two. And that is the best way to thrive in cold temperatures! =]:)
