As posted at RevGalBlogPals, where you can see Singing Owl’s wintry view:
1. What is the thermometer reading at your house this morning?
It was 15 when I drove The Princess to school this morning.
2. Snow—love it or hate it?
As one of those people "from away," in my case a Southern state, I have never gotten over thinking snow is gorgeous. That said, we’ve had a lot this winter, so I am not praying for more, or not much at one time, anyway.
3. What is winter like where you are?
It has actually been less snowy here in the past twenty years (my time in the northeast) than it was historically. (Global warming, perhaps?) The winters are pretty manageable for me. If we don’t have a couple of big snowstorms, at least, I’m disappointed. It’s definitely cold here, with or without snow, although last year we had an unusually mild winter.
4. Do you like winter sports? Any good stories? Nope, not a one. I’m a wimp about exercising where there might be ice, knowing how likely to break myself I am.
5. What is your favorite season, and why?
I love fall. I enjoy the cooler but not yet cold weather, and I love to watch the leaves turn.
Bonus: Share a favorite winter pick-me-up. A recipe, an activity, or whatever. My favorite thing is a snow day spent with my kids. That might involve baking (not this winter, too point-y…) or just cuddling up to watch movies together with a fire in the fireplace.
