Living in a winter wonderland

It snowed last night!

For most folks, that may not be such a big deal, but it's the first significant snowfall I have encountered in almost six years.

After four plus years in the Florida Keys, and an almost snowless winter in Seattle last year (at least where Rachael and I live and work), it was fun, sitting in the living room, watching the flakes fall. And a late walk through Lincoln Park was hush, chill and lovely.

I am certain that by Monday, if this continues, I will remember why I left Ohio (for the Florida sun) in the first place, but for now, I'll enjoy the greeting card images and savor a good book and a mug of cocoa in front of the fireplace.
