the hot water, it goes fast.

Plenty of hot water for a shower in the summer, not so much in the winter. Can I do anything about it?

I'm guessing it's because the water coming in is colder, but I'd really like to do something, anything. The length of shower I can take is easily half the time I can when the weather is warmer. The water gets very hot, but just not a lot of it.
side note: I've been told I should be using a blanket/cover of some kind around the water heater for efficiency sake, will this help any with length of time? i can't imagine it would make much difference and I think the tank is too close to the wall to wrap around anyways.
