Happy winter!

So here I am in upstate New York on the shortest day of the year. Also the snowiest. Or what I hope will be proven to have been the snowiest because I doubt I can handle any days snowier than today.

That's not really fair; it was really the snowiest weekend. The snow in question actually started on Friday around noon and continued more or less non-stop (maybe it stopped while I was sleeping but how can I know for sure?) until this evening. I felt like I was living in a snow globe that some monster person was continuously shaking to keep the snow from ever settling. Really. This snow was out of hand. Out of hand enough to make me think of monster people, in fact.

Anyway, out of hand snow aside, I have such a great feeling today. It's the shortest day of the year! That means every day from today until that far off day in June will get progressively longer. Sure, we're buried in a foot of snow but the days are getting longer!

It's the simple things around here, the simple things.

Happy winter!

Wow. I could have used this silver lining post yesterday! I will have to keep this in mind.

I'm doing my best to think this way!

Y'know, maybe I really truly could if I were still laughing semi-hysterically over your "also the snowiest."

Please tell me you have a Connection On High and can verify that this was no mere "hope."

I concur, this is GREAT news. Things can only get better from here on out. I'm secretly (yes, already) craving days where it doesn't get dark until after 7:oo p.m. Can't WAIT!!!

I cannot believe all the snow we got this weekend! It was crazy! At least it stopped for now!

I don't know if I could deal with that much snow!! Stay dry & warm... and merry Christmas! (I guess you can look at the bright side... what's Christmas without snow? Us Californians get gypped!)
