Day 7: Snow Does Not Make Christmas, Christmas
People have been complaining like crazy that there hasn't been any snow in Stockholm yet. Nary even a flake, which truth be told, is pretty unusual for this late in the season. However, one resident of this fair city is not among the complainers for I am quite ambivalent about the cold, white stuff that falls from the sky. Don't get me wrong...I do love the beauty of freshly fallen snow. I love the way it brightens up our dark landscape and I do enjoy watching Tanner roll around in it. And granted, if it's going to be cold then there might as well be snow because a snow covered dead landscape is much nicer than the stark bareness that ensues during a winter without snow.
