i thought that perhaps if i made a list of all the things i like about winter, i would feel better about it.
what i like about winter:
1. christmas vacation (done for the year)
2. snow days (teachers, of course, love these)
3. taking cool frozen precipitation pics (super cool ice formations on the deck from yesterday morning)
that's it. i was going to add sweaters to the list, but honestly, fall and spring are plenty cold enough for sweaters for me, so winter isn't really necessary in that regard. yep. 60 days till spring . . .
