In our neck of the woods, snow is a good thing. We like snow. We need snow. It keeps us alive. It sustains our existential balance. And the same is true of the truly cold winter days and nights. A deep and thorough freeze is what keeps pestilence and disease from running rampant through our beautiful world. So quit yer bitchin'! Take advantage and catch up on all those "indoor" tasks you've let slide.
To help you join in the spirit of things, here's a little ditty along with appropriate pix, from my good buddy Richard Wiegel. Enjoy.
