Cold

The cold air has arrived here on the east end and I can't say I'm sorry. The only thing I don't like about our weather right now is the wind. And hopefully that will begone today.

I find the cold air invigorating, as opposed to the way the heat saps our energy and makes us feel as though we should sit around on Big front porch sipping lemonade or mint Julips and having servants to wave large palm branches over us to create a breeze. But the breeze we long for in the summer is dreaded in the winter because it causes that cold to bite into your skin and penetrate into your innermost being. "Chilled to the bone" as they say.

Yes, I welcome the cold air. It makes me feel alive and I like that feeling. But about that wind...
