It is an unseasonable 72°F in Virginia as I search to find “winter” photos for Ailsa’s weekly travel theme at Where’s my backpack? The warm temperatures remind me that some of my favorite aspects of the season have nothing to do with cold and snow.
However, on a normal December day, it is cold here. I hate being cold. Winter gives me an excuse to find all sorts of warm woolly socks.
In almost all the places I’ve ever lived, winter brings snow, and snow brings me all kinds of joy.
