"He who marvels at the beauty of the world in summer will find equal cause for wonder and admiration in winter.... In winter the stars seem to have rekindled their fires, the moon achieves a fuller triumph, and the heavens wear a look of a more exalted simplicity."
~John Burroughs, "The Snow-Walkers," 1866

Stay warm and don't forget to enjoy the winter's beauty!
