Like Betsy's area, we were below 17 degrees last night! We also have around 8 to 10 inches of the pretty fresh white stuff on the ground because of the snowfall we received yesterday.
Don't get me wrong, I love to visit Florida but I just could not live there and not have the distinct changes of season that mark our year here in the Midwest.
As I've gotten older I have actually come to appreciate the changes even more too. We are many of us are different in our weather "needs," and I'm glad too!
