Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow...

Apparently we've accumulated more snow here in New England in the last few days then we have in the past 100 years or so. I'm hearing a lotta grumbling and I've done a little myself, but you know what? After however many years in L.A., I'll take the full four seasons over eternal sunshine any day.


1. If it's not too cold and you're not stuck in it, it's goddamn beautiful (or, when it's not beautiful, it's at least cinematic and interesting).

2. Cold weather wakes me up and keeps me alert, as opposed to hot weather, which just makes me all sluggish (and occasionally nauseous).

3. Can't get enough of that crunching snow sound.

4. Two words: Snow Day. Thanks to our friend snow, the missus and I just got ourselves a nice unexpected three day weekend (and some nice, unexpected exercise digging out the car).

5. But this is the big one: that nice feeling of camaraderie you get in the winter, that sense of "we're all in it together" that I only experienced in L.A. on Oscar night and after a nice, juicy earthquake. Plus after surviving these next few snowy months, the sun and warmth of spring will feel extra sweet, assuming I survive.

So there.
