It is of course nothing like this outside my window. It is snowy and cold. We are in the thick of winter now in the Upper Peninsula. Next week will be the Heikki Lunta Winter Carnival . Heikki Lunta is the Finnish god of snow.
In the winter I hibernate like a bear–but next weekend I will go out and watch fireworks in the cold. They are so brilliant against the night winter sky, looming slow in the frigid air. Perhaps I will even have some winter photos to share.
