Interminable Winter

Winter always looks nicer in paintings. Majestic. Charming. Unblemished. Like this:

I’m done trying to fancy up the season with quotes by intelligent, creative dead people. If they were here, they’d probably be annoyed, too.

    • Trust me when I tell you that it looks way more romantic in paintings, photographs, and movies. In real life, not so much. It is usually quite breathtaking literally as it is falling, but once it hits the ground it loses most of its charm. I envy you your heat. We are having a very horrible, unusual winter where I live. This much snow is out of the ordinary here, and it has been colder this year than it has been since 1994. If I wanted weather like this, I would live in New York, Minnesota, or Canada.
