One of the funniest things about the south is the way people react to snow. School is cancelled, people freak out and a "winter storm warning" goes into effect. And when I say snow I mean about 1-2 inches. Maybe it's because I am Canadian and in Canada 1-2 feet is considered an average winter day. It snows from November to April and nobody thinks twice. Anyhow, I am so happy that it snowed here, especially for Christmas! Plus, it gave me a chance to wear my new coat which seems made for a snowy day.

Even Duffy liked the snow!
I love winter. It is cold, it is bleak, but it makes me feel like I am home.
And here is my favourite winter poem:
Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening by Jack Frost
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
