I've noticed that too, although I think I tend to shed hair more in the 
summer than in the winter, or when I'm under stress (are your people under 
more stress these days perhaps??).  But I have also noticed also that my 
nail growth slows down significantly in the winter - I like to keep them as 
trim as possible and definitely have to cut them less in winter.
