Not many people truly enjoy winter. In fact, if given the option, many would erase winter altogether from the seasonal cycle and be happy with just the remaining three. Unfortunately, this is not an option. So, you can either spend a good four months being unhappy and cold, or you can embrace the fact that the cold is here to stay — at least for a little while — and check out some of the wintery escapades the Bay Area has to offer.
If the walls of your office are closing in and it has been a while since you did something spontaneous, take a day off, rent a San Francisco limo, pack a picnic lunch and go whale watching. The virtues of working hard, delayed gratification and other selfless acts are well documented, and there is no doubt they are practical and admirable character traits. However, the grind of doing the same thing day after day can wear down even the most disciplined worker. If the prospect of another Wednesday in the cube farm is simply too much to bear, take a personal day, sick day, mental health day or manufacture a euphemism of your own and get the heck out of the office to do something fun!
