The miserable short dark winters followed by the beautiful long summer days can cause a bi-polar effect (for some, like) that needs to be dealt with. It's rather the opposite of South Texas (for me) where the relentless heat and sun kept me indoors in the late spring and summer, and I only went outdoors much during the fall and winter. One difference in the inverse analogy is it's not that beautiful to me in South Texas in the fall and winter.

I think that Southern California has the monopoly in CONUS on perfect weather, but there must be something wrong there since they keep showing up around here with umbrellas.
Decades ago, there was a landmark research paper on the effect of weather on different cultures and different regions of the country.... your comment reminded of this.... I'll see if I can locate that paper and post it unless someone else has it at their fingertips
