one day of winter


In the South, it’s rare to see winter weather.  If it’s below freezing, it’s usually clear; seldom do we see snow.  One or two days a season – if we’re lucky.

For the first 30 years of my life, I lived in the North where snow, cold, ice and all things winter are the norm.  I confess that I miss it terribly; I’ve always been a winter person.  Someday I will return to live in a place where winters actually feel like winter.  Where I can ski and snowshoe, fish through a hole in the ice, watch the snow fall, and feel the cold air on my face.

For now, at home, I take a walk out behind our house and  rejoice in the rare beauty of this day – this one day where it feels like winter … a wonderful surprise.
