We get it. It's cold. And it's not even winter yet.

But the WGN Morning News team tries to find the positive in everything.

Here are 9 good things about an early polar vortex:

9. HOLIDAY DECORATIONS: You can be as lazy as you want to be. The wife can't blame you for not taking the halloween decorations down when they're stuck under snow and ice. When in doubt, throw a santa hat on that frozen skeleton and call it a day.


8. BINGE-WATCHING: When it's cold outside. I have absolutely no guilt sitting on the couch eating junk food and binge watching "Gilmore Girls" on Netflix. For the record, I'm "Team Jess." Gilmore girls fans totally get what I'm saying.


7. BOXED WINE: Cold weather is the perfect reason to stay home and drink multiple boxes of wine. You can also heat it up on the stove, throw a clove in there and call it "festive."


6. NO PANTS: You're not leaving the house. Know what that means? You never have to wear real pants again. Or at least until April.


5. BABY MAKING: There's nothing else to do, so why not make some babies? Cuddle up, put on some sexy music and make a lot of whoopee. Then, come August or September, you might find a welcome surprise.


4. HIDE THOSE POUNDS: If you do have to go outside, just pile on the layers. They're perfect for hiding those extra pounds you gained, sitting on your couch and eating Doritos. If anyone notices you've gained a few pounds, just say, "It's not me. It's the jackets."


3. HATS: Hats are a wonderful part of a polar vortex. Stop doing your hair altogether. Don't wash it. Don't brush it. What's the point? Just wear a new hat to work every day and let your hat do all the work for you.


2. BOOTS AND SOCKS: When it's below zero, there's no need for a pedicure. Thanks to socks and boots, nobody's gonna see your feet until June. So let those freak toes fly!


And the No. 1 good thing about an early polar vortex: You might finally get a date with the pizza delivery guy -- since he's the only one who's coming to your house on a regular basis. Next time, invite him in where it's warm and share a slice...or more.
