If you live in snow country, you are probably getting fed up with winter round about now, eh? And spring is still a long way off . . . sigh . . .
But surely there are some positive things to be said for winter, especially if you are into snow sports (which I am not). Such as, there are no mosquitoes and black flies buzzing around my head when I step out the door! That’s a good thing, eh?
What about you? What do you like about winter?

Once Christmas is over the tourist finally leave (there are a lot of them) San Francisco residents get the place to ourselves for a few months. It can rain abiy but there is no snow.
So, no snowmen . . .er . . . no snowpeople (must be politically correct, yes?).
You could try the Swedish sauna thing and jump au naturel into the snow. We’re sure that will drive a winter blahs away! I was going to suggest ice-fishing but frankly I wouldn’t eat any fish coming out of the St. Lawrence. However several bottles of Mead or mugs of hot-buttered rum go nicely in the cabanes! Valentine’s Day is around the corner |D :*
Hot tub outside while its snowing, red wine in the Timmy’s mug….. Doesn’t get any better than that!
Mmmm. Sounds lovely.
