OK, I admit it. Winter can be pretty. The falling snow, the icy crystals hanging onto branches, the untouched, snowy white landscape.
Until that ice and snow takes down power lines and you are left with no electricity. For 3 whole days and very cold nights. But we are the lucky ones. There are still those without lights as we speak.
What does one do without electricity? Very little. Oh, we went to town to get out of the house during the day and to visit neighbors who bought generators 25 years ago when there was another winter as bad as this one. But mostly, there isn't that much to do when you are under many blankets trying to keep warm. But it is okay now. And we treated our weekend like a big adventure!
Anyway, I could go the rest of my life just looking at pretty winter pictures as long as I was looking at them while I was in my shorts sitting next to a swimming pool . . .
