Winter is Coming

They say winter is coming.

The area is full of winter storm warnings, dire predictions and people shivering at the mere thought of snowy weather arriving.

Napping in the autumn sun.

But not me.

I’ll welcome the true winter weather when it comes.

Unfortunately, I suspect we are heading into nothing more than the transition period. The time of cloudy days and freezing temperatures with no snow but plenty of frozen puddles and icy mud patches that precedes real winter. duck in leaf pileI hope I’m wrong. Maybe winter will show up for good tonight.

We’ve been spoiled by a long fall of gorgeous weather but it’s about time for a little cold. It may come with beautiful snowfalls and freezing temperatures or it may be a month of slush, but I’ve got my warm fire and a pile of books to read.

I’m ready!

Update: It’s snowing!!! It may all melt tomorrow but first snow is always magic!

    The thing I like about snow is the beauty. We are surrounded by evergreen trees so some snow on the branches and a bright red Cardinal is a real sight.

    Having lived my entire life in the north (until the past 4 yrs) I know how that first snow is greeted with excitement. Enjoy. Sounds like you have the perfect plan for the cold weather.

      It was greeted with so much excitement this morning! The kids put on snow stuff over pjs (well except for Jane but that’s a whole different story) to go out and play and Ivy was outside in the fresh white stuff before I even woke up and I was out there just as fast as I could get everyone else’s boots on!

    Fall and Winter are my favorite seasons. Sadly in Cali we really don’t have seasons. We have hot and not so hot. One day I will live somewhere where there are glorious seasons. 🙂

      I would be sad to live without seasons even though the transitions between can get a little sloppy. I love the ebb and flow of it enough to make it worthwhile!
