Today is the day that SNOW should begin. It could be that it will be a big storm, and we will keep this snow until Aril.
Winter's beauty is best seen in nature, where all becomes very quiet. My favorite walks are the winter walks, tracking the steps of animals who have crossed the path earlier in the day.
Birds on branches, heavy with the wonderful white, visiting my feeder for food. I sit near the window, watching their actions in the early morning.
Preparing for snow is a mental shift, bundling up against the cold. Summer's breezes replaced with the cold North Wind.
Preparing for snow also means physical labor. Snow blower is ready, wood is cut and stacked, ready for burning in the living room stove.
Snow pants, coats, hats and mittens are out. The crampons and snowshoes are ready. I am prepared for snow!
