Carole Meekins: Positively Milwaukee

The Joy of Winter

  • Print
I know..a lot of you do not like it. But I have to say when I woke up and saw snow, I was happy. I think few things are more beautiful than a light dusting of snow in the winter. Everything looks so fresh, so pristine. I looked out the window of my home this morning and there were four baby deer. They looked so peaceful against Mother Nature's bleached canvas. I only wished I had the time to take a few pictures. But I had to get to work. I have lived in places where there were no seasons. I am not fond of that. Seeing Santa sweat in 80 degree heat when we lived in San Antonio Texas just seemed wrong. Even when I was a child, I longed for a Christmas with snow. I know I am in the minority. But I find snow invigorating. It gives me energy, and a peace I cannot describe. It's as though Mother Nature freezes her beauty, and shares it with us. Now in a few months, if we get another 100 inches of snow like last year, I may not be so positive. After all, I have only gotten out my ice scraper a few times this year. My winter glee could easily melt by the end of January. I'll let you know.
