I have been listening to this song “Let her go” by Passenger and I like the lyrics. I missed the sun not only when it started to snow but also when it has been raining with grey sky in cold weather for week on out. A break of warm sun light seems like a reward (Pic: January 2012, Down town Cary, NC. USA.).
You miss something when you face the unwanted opposite thing.
I thought this year there wasn’t any snow day. Well, there was one that came during the night before but there was not really that much to be seen in the morning. I did not count that one. Today, it finally snowed for about a couple inches. That was about right to keep the tradition of the winter around here going (no more than this please). Despite the pouring snow, people were busy as usual or even busier …
The parking of the local supper market was packed.
The ground temperature was warm. The snow melted away quickly. I think that was a good thing. I fear accumulations that turn into thick ice later.
Seemed like Christmas again.
Time to get inside.
So far the winter has been very mild to the area. There were very few cold days and many nonseasonal warm days. It is quite unusual for this time of the year. In a way, I am pleased with it. It is better than heavy snow and ice. Only sign of cold winter is frosty leaves on the ground in the morning … which soon (frost) melt by the warmth of the morning sun. Hope it stays this way for the rest of the winter this year.
