You're all crazy!

I love winter! I love it!

I love that it's 42 below and your eyelashes freeze.

I love that the snow is up over your calves.

I love the ice fog that makes everything surreal.

I love the way cars get square tires and frozen shocks and sort of grind around like stone-age carts until the grease heats up.

I love the crunchy crystals that cling to everything with the slightest hint of heat.

I love the way airplanes sound like they're landing on you because of the distortion of sound!

I love wearing fur and big scarves and puffy coats, and the way everyone is anonymous when they're outside.

I love the way my glasses fog up when I come inside.

I love having frost in my hair!

I love how beautiful the mountains look, and the way the sunsets color the skies and how the snow sticks to bent-over trees and makes interesting shapes as it melts and freezes.

I love running outside in stocking feet and knowing my feet won't get wet because it's too cold to melt the snow underneath me. (Unless my socks have holes in them, which is a very unpleasant surprise)

I love the way cold air feels in your lungs.

I love the way your nose hairs freeze and get stiff when you breath in when it's very cold.

I love winter. I'm so happy that we're finally having a real one.

  • Awwww....

    I have the best friends and artists any 'scaly capitalist' could ever ask for. *smothers you all in love*
