The wrappers on the Dove chocolates my mother keeps in the cupboard keep telling me, “Embrace the childhood joys of winter.”
Yeah, right. ‘Cause this winter hasn’t been totally mild.
It snowed once, just before Christmas and it is finally snowing again today. The meteorologists predict that an inch will stick, not enough for skiing (which I don’t do anyway) but enough for a snowman if you work hard.
Here are some pictures of afternoon sunlight playing with ice and snow. I took them all within 30 yards of my parents’ house in Rockford.
