's snowing...

…why is it the first snow makes the air smell so good? And why does it also feel so darn cold? Geesh. It’s not even below zero. But it’s been such a lovely Fall. And now SMACK it’s winter.
But I braved the elements. (Twenty degree windchill and blowing snow.) Ventured far and wide. (30 yards from my house.) To get this lonely playground. Then I rushed back, carefully dodging dog pooh as I crossed the vacant lot back to my house. (Makes it sound more adventurous that way!)

Happy Winter everyone!
