The Horrific Cold & Surprise Thunderstorms

Winter is my least favorite season of them all. Every year, I sit here and wonder why I'm still living in the Midwest. I only really question this when it's the wintertime because I enjoy the other seasons, especially fall and summer. I have a love/hate relationship with the spring. The winter just doesn't do it for me, mainly because the snow in the city isn't snow, it's grey slush.

The weather has been so spastic lately, some days have actually been pretty nice, last night there was a thunderstorm, but the bad days have been awful. The winter is much more fun when you're able to enjoy it by going skiing, sledding, ice skating, and making snow caves and snowmen. Those activities cannot be enjoyed when the temperature is in the teens and below. The freezing dreary days make me want to do watch one movie in particular: The Shining. I'm not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing, I'm going to go with good because I love The Shining.

The Shining is the perfect horror movie to watch during the winter! Particularly because it focuses on a man, Jack Torrence, going mad due to being cooped up in a hotel during a freezing cold, snowy winter. Ok, so maybe he didn't exactly go crazy because it was a blizzard outside, the hotel itself was what was infecting his mind, but that cold weather couldn't have helped matters. All that work and no play didn't help him out much either...

I have seen The Shining at least 3 or 4 times, and I still believe it to be one of the most frightening films I've ever seen.

Hi Dawn! The Shining is definitely one of the most frightening films. I remember when I first watched it. I was home alone and decided to watch it when I was in high school. To say it scared me is an understatement.
