Farmhouse in this morning’s pretty snow


We have snow.
And, prior to this,
a couple of days of freezing temperatures.
It feels wonderful
to have winter weather.
Last summer’s drought and heat
has put winter into perspective.
Living things on the prairie
need winter days.
So, it is with great joy
and a sense of relief
that we welcome
winter weather.
