Winter doesn't officially start until December 21st. But the annual wintertime surveys are starting to come out. And here's a great stat from a new one we saw . . .
This winter, the average American will get sneezed on six times.
It also found the average person will slip or fall seven times . . . step in two puddles . . . get sick twice . . . have eight weather-related driving scares . . . and complain about the weather an average of five times a day.
And according to the survey, the thing we hate MOST about winter is having cold hands and feet.
The rest of the top ten are runny noses . . . dry skin . . . having to wear so many layers . . . getting out of bed . . . dirty snow . . . shorter days . . . sick people on public transportation . . . staying in so much . . . and waking up when it's still dark out.
And finally, what's the ideal temperature to have your thermostat set at during winter? The average answer was 70 degrees.
