2012, Day 213 - Memories of winter

The forecast is calling for an increase in the daily highs and that is not something that I welcome.  I've enjoyed our mild summer with cool mornings and don't care to see the temperature spike to the nineties.  Instead I will happily reflect on the winter weather, the bare trees, the cool breezes, the crocuses peeking out from the leaf litter.  There is a calmness about winter, people stay in their homes while the earth slumbers and those of us outside get a little more privacy.  The nights are quiet as people seek out of warmth of their homes instead of late night adventures and peace blankets my neighborhood more often than snow.  I am looking forward to another quiet winter.
