These qyotes about winter will help those who live in freezing, snowy areas feel better about the mess and will help those who live in warm areas like I do (it’s supposed to get into the 80s this week- blech) feel like it is actually cold outside!

We feel cold, but we don’t mind it, because we will not come to harm. And if we wrapped up against the cold, we wouldn’t feel other things, like the bright tingle of the stars, or the music of the Aurora, or best of all the silky feeling of moonlight on our skin. It’s worth being cold for that.

But first, you hear the crackle of their wings.”

Snow blizzards galore!

If it snowed til July.
Snow! Snow! Snow!”

― Rachel Cohn
