The lack of sunlight might have something to do with it. You need to learn to embrace winter and winter activities. Snow and ice are not to be avoided. They are great opportunities for fun such as sledding, cross country skiing, ice skating, etc.
Unlike my other geocaching companions, I enjoy geocaching in winter more than summer. There is no poison ivy to worry about. There are no biting insects. Underbrush leaves are down to make spotting the container easier, and there are no leaves on the upper canopy blocking a GPS signal.
All I need to worry about is keeping warm enough (which is easy enough for me to do with layers) and thin ice (when everything is smooth and white, you never know where land ends and water begins and I have found out the hard way).
