Oh winter… I really do try to find the best in you. But you make it so hard sometimes. Now it kind of seems like climate change is shaving off a bit of the usual snow that we’ve traditionally endured in these parts. But the cold? Nope, it still comes around. Born and bred here in the midwest and I still can’t come to terms with it. But nonetheless, I force myself to get out there. And that’s what we did today. We bundled up. And we went into the wild (well, a suburban forest preserve-does that count?). The cold cut. And the wind ripped. But hell, it was a good day that I wouldn’t trade for a hundred warm ones.
