Winter Remains...

And if I'm honest?
I really don't mind. Not one bit! While GB is definitely a 3-season, never below 55º kind of guy, I am definitely a 4-season kind of gal. Hmmm....who ever heard of having a home in a warm climate and going to the frigid for winter months??? (That would be me!)

  1. Given your posted picture, it's definately a good thing you're a 4-season kinda gal! lol For me personally, bring on the beach, palm trees, and sunshine :)
    Stay warm!

  2. I'm with you. Twenty some years ago, I had the chance to move to Florida for a job. After living there for three months on a job assignment, I said thanks, but no thanks. I would be lost with out four distinct seasons. I don't like to admit it, but I actually don't mind shoveling snow. But don't tell John.

  3. I like all 4 seasons, too as long as they are not extreme. I would not like living in the north where winter lasts forever and the snow is measured in feet rather then inches. I would also not like living in the southwest where the summer is hotter then you know what and the water is scarce. I feel that the lower midwest where I live is just perfect for all 4 seasons in moderation.

  4. I am confused, maybe its the cold .. do you have a home in a warm climate that you are not going to? And, if so, may I? Wait. I HAVE a condo in FL... ummm .. why am I here?

  6. I like four seasons, also, but would rather the temperatures did not fall below 40 degrees or above 85. That being the case, I'm living in the wrong place! :)

  8. Love the umbrella shape of that tree! We went up to Flagstaff earlier in December to take my mother to the train and to see the snow! I'm with ya there, though I'm glad I don't have to live with it every day! And, we have 5 seasons here, but I do miss a New England autumn!

  9. That's a beautiful shot. Creates the impression that his life has been shaped by the falling snow.

    I'm a four-season gal, too.

  10. I expected snow this winter too, but all we got was ICE! That ice storm just ruined me for winters now!

    But the photo you've taken here is very nice - I really like it!

  11. I love all 4 seasons as well. In western Oregon we usually don't have much freezing weather and snow...in fact as I look out my window the grass is green and it is raining. I grew up in Northeastern Oregon where there are four distinct seasons and that is one of the things I miss the most. In fact I was never exposed to much fog or drizzle while growing up. Big adjustment for me.
