I know this is totally off topic, but we're now recovering from our "First Snowfall of the Season..." to quote the song, and it's inspired so much beauty as well as the urge to snuggle up with a good book (a fluffy warm cat would be a nice accompaniment) and just relax. I thought I'd reach out to see how others respond to these storms.
For those in winter areas, do storms excite you, or do you see them as more work? Do you watch the gentle path of tiny snowflakes as they fall silently from an overcast sky? Does the artist in you want to take photos to preserve the scene? Do the bakers want to make the house fragrant with delicious foods "from the oven"? (I'm thinking chocolate chip cookies here!)
If you dread going out into the zero or subzero wind chill weather, how do you prepare? Hot chocolate, mulled cider, herbal tea, flavored coffee?
Do you study the changing colors of the sky, often ranging from the pale white when snow is falling to baby blue with tufts of quickly moving clouds?
Do you get out garden catalogues and start marking off seeds or plants to buy next spring?
