This is a winter like I remember from my childhood. Almost. SNOW! We haven't seen the grass since November. Fortunately the snow does melt a bit, or we'd be wading chest deep through the snow pack.
I love parts of winter. We slow down, a bit. The house feels less like Grand Central Station than in the frenzy of spring through fall. It's absolutely beautiful outdoors when the sun shines.
I do not love other parts of winter. Things break more often when it's cold. In our part of the world, winter is a sunless time, a seemingly endless parade of grey days. I hate driving on icy roads. And it takes more work to care for the animals.
I am amused by all the hype surrounding (gasp) winter weather. The meteorologists are now calling normal winter weather "Winter Weather Advisories." And the storms are now named, probably so that we can feel like we're keeping up with the hurricane people.
What are your winter pros and cons? How are you faring this winter?
