I love the stillness of the ground, the quiet after a dusting, the way the world seems holy, untouched.
If you boil ginger and lemon into hot water it will warm your entire body and cure any cold you have. Boil two cups of water, throw in a full piece of diced ginger, and squeeze half a lemon into the pot. Let it stew for 10 minutes. It’s a cure-all.

You feel like you haven’t seen the sun in years. The time has “fallen back” which means it is nightfall by the time you leave work. You go home and indulge yourself in beers and tears in the bathtub. This is your life now.
I’m so glad I don’t go there anymore.
As temperatures fall and most of the country begins making preparations for bad weather, it’s a good idea to remind ourselves of the winter rules of the road.
