I love winter.
Well ok, let me define that a little more.
I love the winter memories I have of growing up in the Midwest.
The first seasonal South Dakota snowfall could happen as early at Halloween.
My homemade Halloween costumes were usually larger than need be just in case I had to wear a parka underneath.
It would be unlikely that this snow would stick around for long but it was always a reminder that lots more would soon be on the way.
Thanksgiving was always cold and by December the farm dams and ponds were already frozen over.
