He's here..

It's been a long time, but I recognized him the moment I saw him.   Actually, I knew he had arrived even before that.  I could smell him.  I could feel him.  I  knew he was close.

I was upset.  Mad almost.

I'm not sure why.  I knew he was bound to come any day now.  But I hadn't been listening, and I had no warning.

He doesn't care.  That's the way he is.  Just shows up.  No matter how I feel, or if I'm ready.

He's always been that way.  Probably always will.

Can you see him?  He's there.   Look. 

Can you see him now?  I know you can.  Do you feel the same way I do?

Oh that's right...Mr. Frost.

Big jerk.  (oh..did I write that?  Oops..sorry.)

**I am currently revamping my views on winter.  I am opting for a more positive approach to the cold, snowy season.  Bear with me as I adjust to this optimism.  Thank you.**

Mark feels exactly as you do Amy....I am buying snow pants this year...and plan on having a BLAST in the snow when it arrives...hopefully not for another month or more though!

WOW that is early! I'd be annoyed with him too. I am miffed that my kids can't wear all of their cute new fall clothes because it's still in the 80s here. It's nice, but I am looking forward to a cool down!

Jack came by on Monday. He was hidden under the snow on our windshield...Mr. Frost was mocking us for having misplaced our scraper in the last move.
He did that last year too!
