I love winter for many, many reasons.  Which is a good thing since I live in the frozen tundra of Minnesota.  I love days like today that are so very, very sunny and blue and beautiful…and then you step outside and are frozen to the spot.  I love cold weather, because you can always put another layer on but only take off so much in the summer, know what I mean?  One of the things that always warms me is this image:


I love the way Minnesotans don’t seem at all effected by the cold.  And when the boys (and girls, I am sure, but my neighbors are boys) walk over to the local ice to play a pick up game?  Not anything you’d see outside of the frozen tundra.
