So, I'll have to admit, I sort of forgot just how cold it gets here in South Dakota. We haven't lived back home in fourteen years, so it was easy to forget simple things like negative degree days. But, it's a happy trade off for me; I'll take cold, negative degree days over hot, humid, sticky days.
In the winter time
When all the leaves are brown
And the wind blows so chill
And the birds have all flown for the summer
~ Steve Mille Band, Winter Time Lyrics.
