There is a hint of fall all around if you look closely. Although I haven't turned my heater on yet, there is a light chill in the early morning. There are tiny patches of red and orange leaves on the larger trees. And there is FOOTBALL!!!
This time of year in the North Country, you cherish every nice day because you know that before long the cold and snow will set in seemingly forever. It takes longer to drive to work with the snow and ice. It takes longer once you get to work to settle in because you have to unwrap and change from your boots into your shoes!
As much as I complain about winter, especially into January and February, it is a part of the four seasons. I have learned to appreciate the good and the bad of each season. It is a part of life. I grew up in the South where there was a long hot summer and a cold damp, rainy winter. . . just two seasons!
Morgan loves playing in the snow! Sometimes, when it gets really deep, I have to dig a path for her in the backyard. Then she will find a way to break away from that path and make her own paths!
