Urban winter was often wet, and cold, and miserable.
Rural winter is often beautiful and striking and cold and a little frightening.
In the city we holed up and turned up the heat and ran from covered, heated space to covered heated space.
Here we all bundle up, light a fire earlier and earlier and shovel. A Lot. A Whole Lot.
I used to hate winter pretty passionately. I am not a fan of being cold.
I still don't like being cold but I love warming up. Winter makes me appreciate so much in life.
The early early dark? That's a whole other story!
