Sometimes: Some people experience noticeable mood and energy changes with onset of autumn and winter. (seasonal affective disorder, or "sad".) this can be more frequent in northern areas that go gray or dark early, during those seasons. Moving to a more light-filled location like arizona can bring great relief. This can also work the opposite -- seasonal depression in summer months. I've seen it here.
