I know there are people out there who love winter the very most. There might not be very many of them, but surely they exist.
For the rest of us, winter is something we deal with and try to have a good attitude about (mostly failing) while we freeze and dig out our cars and entertain our kids while they’re home from school.

12. All those trees are ready for summer, too.
