Snow! (I hope)
I enjoy a fine, snowy winter. To me that also means birds at my feeders, a warm fire, dogs and cats at my feet, a good book, warm sweaters and a mug of something hot and steaming or compfortably alcoholic, depending on the time of day. I can do most of those things when there's no snow, but snow completes the picture for me. A non-snowy winter is simply less fun and a lot less pretty, despite the clouds in this photo. A pink sunrise is glorious whatever the season. But sunrises soon fade, replaced by lots of brown during the rest of the day. Snow on the ground is something I can enjoy all day long.
This time of year, 3-5 inches of snow would normally not be something to crow about. This year it's the best we can manage so far. Therefore, I will.crow in anticipation. And continue to ignore the possibility of ice.
