But I find the snow and cold temperatures so delightful! I was worried we'd pass the holidays without snow ... but it came, and stayed! SuperBoy is so excited for me to take him sledding at the park this week. Our park has some fun kid-sized sledding hills.
I was driving along a highway today, and had to pull over and take this picture just before the sun rose over the mountains. The snow was swirling across the lanes like dry ice, and it made me think of a twirling, icy plum fairy dance. It was hauntingly beautiful.
I dare say winter has begun. Time to break out the hot cocoa and house slippers!
