Earlier in the month I was lamenting the lack of winter, mainly because the plants were too far along, and the bug population around here could use some thinning. Well, real winter arrived this week, and it has been miserable outside, at least by local standards. I realize there are colder places to live, but I am at my northerly limit. We had our first snow last night, and I must admit it was pretty outside this morning, the silver lining (or should that be white) to winter weather.
