This winter has been mild. It’s been unusually warm for the most part. It’s much more bearable than a complete dumping of snow. I do like the snow. I like it when the sun is shining and the wind is NOT blowing. I like it when you walk outside into a winter wonderland of untouched beauty. You know… before the first tracks are laid into it. I like the white outlining each and every exposed tree branch and it’s heaviness weighing on the evergreens. I’m excited to try out my new snowshoes. I’m waiting for some of the fluffy white stuff to arrive. It’s here… but not in the pleasant way. It’s BITTER cold outside this morning! There are gusts of wind too…. not pleasant.
