Strange thing about snow. When I saw it yesterday, I felt relieved. As if all was right now with the world. It is December. We should have snow and the landscape now looks like it ought. The thought surprised me. Of course I loved snow as a kid, but viewed it as an unfortunate condition of winter as an adult. Living north has taught me that a city and neighbors can take care and keep life going with snow. And the white blanket on all of the garden beds looks so much nicer than they did after the leaf raking. Can three winters in Madison make such a difference?

Maybe it is time to buy some winter sports accessories.
