Although the winter solstice officially happens tomorrow: I feel like writing about “The Beginning Of Winter” today and the wintertime season is arriving soon. The winter weather around here has been quite seasonal as they say, and according to the weatherman on the news last night we’ve had about 5” of snow already this year. But there is no snow on the ground at the moment. Because of these warm days with temperatures above freezing winter is starting off very wet with rain today.
The thoughts of Old Man Winter’s arrival means that frigid weather will be here soon enough and I should be enjoying the rain today. The idea that this is the middle of the wintertime season doesn’t really mean that much to me, because I feel like the real wintertime weather hasn’t even started yet; the rain today just proves my point.
Even though I’m happy that the days will be getting longer now…I am not looking forward to the inevitable below freezing temperatures and the blizzards to follow, so I’m really going to enjoy this beginning of winter and the Christmas season. By trying to keep a positive outlook on life no matter what the weather is like, and here’s to wishing you and yours a very merry Christmas holiday.
Thanks for Listening,
