Almost enough

I was born and raised in suburban Washington D.C., and lived in southeast Ohio for seven years and northern Illinois for twenty-one. I've endured my share of winters; I will never get used to them. The unrelenting gray, the wind, the layers of clothes. The day after a snowfall, however, still gets me, enough to renew the cliché of stark winter beauty, if not quite enough to make me pine, daily, for spring.
