A Letter to My Summer-Lovin' Friends
A little blizzard blew through here last night. I loved every minute of it: the sideways-blowing snow, the wind, the color of my nose and cheeks when I came in from the cold, the stunning white blanket that was thrown over everything in sight this morning.
Because, dear friends, I love winter. I love snow. I love the cold, clear air that keeps me from feeling dozy and droopy. I love the sound my boots make scrunching through the snow. It's invigorating, mentally and physically.
Perhaps we can all agree on the delights of spring and autumn, and split off into winter- vs. summer-lovin' corners the rest of the year. So, enjoy your days at the beach. As for me, in the month of February, I say: let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
Your Friendly Snow Miser
