THE LONG WINTER
By Nancy Whitaker
Summer is almost over and we are approaching autumn. Autumn is a favorite time of year which brings us falling colorful leaves, bonfires, pumpkins, apples and the first frost.
The whole countryside presents us with a kaleidoscope of beauty as leaves turn colors and fall to the ground forming a colorful carpet on the grass.
I will say that I do enjoy living in an area that enjoys the weather of all four seasons. Some people hate the cold weather in the winter, so they migrate to areas where they don’t have to experience any snow or blizzard-like conditions. But, I just can’t imagine Christmas time without snow or cold.
