Winter

We have been waiting for months for Winter..I mean, that is why we live in the Northern country. We love the smell of snow...the silence of night..the hum of the heater..the extra quilt on the bed. Well, it has arrived.

My thermometer is in the single digits this morning with new fresh snow adding to what already fell this past week end. It looks like a birthday cake outside my windows. It is breathtaking. It also allows for a two hour delay...no one ever complains about that!

So a cheer to Winter and it's late arrival!

Lou Ann

Lou Ann Homan-Saylor lives in Angola, Indiana which is nestled in the hills of Northern Indiana. When she is home at the White Picket Gardens you can find her gardening or writing late into the night under the light of her frayed scarlet lamp. She is a storyteller, a teacher, a writer, an actress and a collector of front porch stories.
