Winter Where Are You?

I know I'm probably in the minority on this but I love winter. I am one of those people that truly loves every season for what it gives me. I love curling up under a blanket with a good book and a basketball game on TV while snow is falling outside.  I love the crisp chill in the air. I love the way the world looks blanketed by snow.  That quiet that comes after a great storm.  I love the way the birds pop against the white in the backyard. 

I know that moving south meant that I was cutting my winters shorter which was ok with me. I love the snow but I don't love it enough to have a winter that lasts forever.  Usually we get a few good snow storms and then it's time for spring. But, this is ridiculous.

It's January. We are in the mid-50's to 60's this week.  I have no idea how to dress anymore. The flowers are all confused and are starting to bloom.  I miss winter.

Here's hoping to a late winter storm to satisify my snowy needs.  And then we can warm up and enjoy Spring!
