Today’s forecast has the words, wind chill, and frostbite in it. That does not make me happy. However, I am pleased to see the fresh snow on the ground. Everything looks a little more Christmassy.

Though I know I’m being a baby, and as a life-long Albertan I should be used to it by now, I still don’t love the idea of wind chills nearing -28. That makes me want to hide under a blanket and hibernate until the spring.
