When I lived in Michigan, it was always clear when the seasons were changing. When it was changing to spring, the snow melted. When it was changing to summer, I didn't have to wear a coat outside anymore. When it changed to fall, the colors. . .oh the colors, and the harvest of fresh veggies and fruits. Apple cider. Yummm. And when it changed to winter, snow. Most people here in the south hate and despise snow. I get that, simply because snow here is awful. But real snow, Michigan snow, ahh, it's a something to treasure and behold. My good friend called the other day and mentioned that it is snowing in Michigan right now and "it is beautiful." I am jealous. We don't get distinct season changes in Oklahoma. This week the temperatures will range from 30's to possible 70's. Which season is that?
Here is snow in Michigan--oh, how I miss thee!
And here is the only way I can tell the seasons are changing in Oklahoma. Sigh.
