Lament for Winter...  
It's January, and I'm missing winter.

These Southern winters where the cold isn’t cold enough and I don’t get to see snow bother me. I miss the sound of snow falling, the way it brushes against my hair and skin. I miss the crunchcrunch as I stomp through it. I miss the way it sparkles like crushed diamonds. Hell, I even miss how the top layer can freeze into a crust that covers the powder. A crust that cracks and crackles in a satisfying way. I miss that silvery frost fuzz that forms on fallen leaves. I miss thick, heavy snow falling fast so that it looks like I'm caught in a snow globe when I look up at the sky.

I miss icicles.

You make me miss it too! I miss the smell of it, and the stillness after a snowfall.

If it makes you feel better, winter in Buffalo started this Friday. Everybody's missing winter this year. Also, the second green Christmas in a row for this supposed snow-capitol.
