Welcoming Winter

It finally came.  Winter arrived this week with an exclamation point.  First the cold, rain, freezing rain, ice, finishing with snow.  Not as much here than elsewhere, but enough to bring the clean, fresh coating of white to the drab of fall.  This time  of year the snow also brings the festivity of Christmas.  There is nothing better than snow for Christmas. 

Of course, after the snowstorm comes the crisp, clear, “cold-as-hell” mornings with the below zero temps… beautiful in that it brings the sun that shines brilliantly on the fresh snow.  Beautiful in that I can stand at my window with my cup of coffee and admire the landscape from the warmth of my fire.
