Born and raised in the Chicago area, we EXPECT January to be cold and snowy! But, this year, that is SO not the case. We had a green Christmas, have only had 1+ inches of snow this winter, and yesterday, it was 50 degrees! But today, we are under a winter storm warning and are expecting upwards of 8 inches with blowing and drifting. If you have never witnessed "blowing and drifting", you are missing out on one of the most amazing things as the artistry that is created by mother nature can be breathtaking!
I love snow! I always have. I can sit and watch it fall for hours and I find it to be so beautiful. Tonight when it is a winter wonderland, I will go outside and play. I will make a snow angel in the snow just like my Mom and I always did and I will just enjoy the general splendour of it all. I can't wait! ETA is about 10:00am and it is supposed to snow for about 24 hours straight. A very good thing!
