Winter's chilling thoughts

     There's something about the first snowstorm of the season.  Northeastern folks question their skills and drive like it's their first time out in slippery conditions when they should know better as veterans of past years. Have they lost their faith in snowplows and sand trucks out treating roads with the upmost care?  Winter comes regularly without fail, and gusty winds more often than not are unavoidable. It shouldn't be a big surprise that heavy coats, boots and snow brooms is part of the drill.
     How discouraging for Mother Nature wishing to commence with a beautiful season filled with Thanksgiving feasts, Christmas cookies and assorted family activities to be reminded that snow is simply a pain in the neck. 
     Don't overlook the beauty. Focus less on the inconveniences.
