Get your mind off wintertime

Clouds so swift
Rain won't lift
Gate won't close
Railings froze
Get your mind off wintertime
You ain't goin' nowhere

Today was just .. about .. perfect. 

We got 2-3 inches of snow overnight, but it was the light stuff and so a breeze to shovel and sno-blow off the driveway.  And it made great snowballs. Which delighted the dog - she likes catching snow in her mouth.  A hint of a breeze but not enough to dislodge it from the trees -so we had that 'snow in trees' thing that makes for great photographs.  Just enough snow to cover the old stuff that was getting sort of grubby, but not so much that you can't leave the house.  Temperature with a bit of a snap to it, but not so cold you feel like you are standing in a deep freeze.

Dogs, children, wife and a fire.  Food in the pantry, roof over our heads.  Who could want for more?
