What is your favorite thing about Snow and Winter, and what is your least favorite thing....
Favourite thing about it - when it goes away and spring (the best of the seasons in my opinion with nature wearing its new coat, and the birds are courting and nesting - I am fascinated by birds in all shapes and forms) takes over!
Least favourite thing - walking on icy footpaths and being worried about falling and injuring myself again (I fell and broke my shoulder on a train - nothing to do with winter - two years ago). I walk everywhere normally - it's great both for exercise and observing the world close up (and for watching birds!). This morning I went out into something that I had never seen before either since I moved to Germany or before that - ice patches resulting from freezing rain overnight (no snow, just ice).
Treacheous! The walk to the local supermarket normally takes about 10 minutes. I was lucky to do it in half an hour. Safely - thankfully. It meant taking the bus back though.
Winter is my favourite season so I have a lot of favourite things!
There are few things in life that calm me more than walking in freshly fallen snow with those big beautiful snowflakes still falling all around me. I find it so peaceful and beautiful and it really helps me clear my head.
I love playing in the snow with my daughter and my dogs and coming in and warming up with a nice cup of hot chocolate.
I also love the colourful twinkly lights that are everywhere in December/early January.
And I have a strong preference for winter clothes. Nothing better than throwing on some cozy layers.
I guess my least favourite thing would be when it gets so cold that it literally hurts your face to be outside. I usually do pretty good until around -20 degrees Celsius, anything colder than that and I admittedly get a bit bah-humbug about the weather.
Oh and it can be tricky to walk around outside if it dumped a bunch of snow and it hasn't been shovelled yet. Especially with a stroller! (That brings me to another thing - I actually LOVE shovelling. It's a good workout and it's so satisfying.)
I LOVE winter! All my favorite sports - skiing, snowboarding, ice skating - are winter sports. I handle extreme cold better than extreme heat.
What don't I like about winter? Driving snowy roads. Since I've never lived in snow country, I never learned how. But that's it!
