TV news reports are filled with winter storm warnings. A blizzard is headed this way, blasting across the Midwest with all the fury Mother Nature can muster.
But winter won’t last forever.
C’mon, let’s hear an “Amen” to that.
Sixty days remain till spring has sprung. That’s two months, no matter what the groundhog says in a week or two.
Here are a few wintry quotations, just for some frosty fun.
“A lot of people love snow. I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water.” (Carl Reiner)
“One kind word can warm three winter months.” (Japanese proverb)
“Perhaps I am a bear, or some hibernating animal underneath, for the instinct to be half asleep all winter is so strong in me.” (Anne Morrow Lindbergh)
“Winter, which, being full of care, makes summer's welcome thrice more wish'd, more rare.” (William Shakespeare)
Do you love winter, or hate it?
Spring is coming!
Just beneath the ground’s surface, bulbs are bulging with the promise of new life. Seeds are sleeping now, so they can spring forth in green growth soon.
We may be shoveling snow this weekend, but the big melt is a-coming.
