There was a time when I didn’t like the winter season. Truth be told, I still prefer fall/spring/summer to the frigid cold and exorbitant amount of snow we’ve been getting in the northeast. When I met my husband, an avid outdoorsman, I learned how to enjoy the cold weather. I needed two things to do so: The right gear and the right frame of mind.
If the temperatures dip much below 25 degrees, I’m homebound (as much as possible!) otherwise I’m game for gearing up and strapping on my snow shoes for both exercise and a scene you don’t see very often around here. And having the chance to sneak away at lunch time today to enjoy newly fallen snow, that is feel good living.
The combination of snowfall and drifts almost buried the bench.

I can honestly say I enjoy snow shoeing. It’s great exercise, gets me out into nature to enjoy the scene and breathe in fresh air. Today was no exception.
How do you make the most out of the weather – rain, snow, sleet or shine? Do you hibernate or gear up and go for it?
