I know you're probably thinking I am crazy desiring cold, stormy weather over the predictable California sunny skies and highs in the 50s during the winter months, but I can't help it. I'm an East Coast girl. I spent 20 years experiencing the beauty of each of the four seasons and was able to properly celebrate the holiday season with hot cocoa, a cold red nose, and snow. Oh snow - how I miss you so!
It has been over four years since I moved out West and in the last three I've spent here in the Bay Area, I have little cold weather clothing to show for it. For the longest time I refused to buy winter jackets, warm sweaters and such because it just never felt like winter. I still don't have much but am saving up for a mini shopping spree - perhaps having warm clothes to wear will help lift my spirits about the lack of winter weather.
Do you have cold, snowy winters? What do you love most about them?
