That's the view out of my office window as of 4:34 this afternoon. That's right, it's been snowing all day. When I peeked out my bedroom window this morning, it was just about a 1/2" of slush, but this stuff has just kept coming all day. I can't even begin to say how much we need this moisture. And Winter Camp starts in a week and a half. How cool is that!
My favorite day of the winter is December 21; actually it's the first day of winter and the shortest amount of daylight of the year. The reason it's my favorite is that it marks the beginning of longer days to come, and that I won't always be heading home in the dark. I'm not sure if this makes me an optimist or a pessimist; but I definitely look forward to spring.
