Spending oneself
From somewhere to somewhere

More weather to talk about

Wintertrees Some trees stay upright, reaching for the winter sky

“There has been more talk about the weather around here this year than common, but there has been more weather to talk about. For about a month now we have had solid cold — firm, business-like cold that stalked in and took charge of the countryside as a brisk housewife might take charge of someone else's kitchen in an emergency. Clean, hard, purposeful cold, unyielding and unremitting. Some days have been clear and cold, others have been stormy and cold. We have had cold with snow and cold without snow, windy cold and quiet cold and indulgent peace-loving cold. But always cold.” 

~ E.B. White in his essay from January 1943, Cold Weather
