Ho-hum … indeed!
So, today it is officially Winter.
It seems kind of silly marking this astronomical and calendar event, since we’ve already endured our share of teeth-chattering and bone-chilling cold. Not to mention, after last weekend’s second measurable snowfall, the ambiance of the newly fallen snow has worn out its welcome and merely tried our patience. In my opinion, snow should be limited to Christmas Eve only – just for effect, and then be whisked away shortly thereafter.
Today is the shortest day of the year, but take heart … the days will get longer as we slowly creep toward Spring.
With 16 inches of pre-Winter snowfall woes under our belt already, I leave you with this thought: “Winter is not a season, it’s an occupation.” ~ Sinclair Lewis
