Chainsaw Bear Welcome Sign in the SnowOne of the things I miss most is real winter. Since I moved to the south — many years ago — people often tell me “You must be so relieved to not have to deal with those winters anymore.” They are always amazed when I tell them that winter has always been my favorite season, and that I miss it with an unreasonable desperation.

So, even though we haven’t see snow here in in years and years, I am digging out some photos from the last time we were lucky enough to get some, and I’ll be posting them, without much comment, throughout these months that most sadden me.
