Over the last couple of days, we've started getting the real weather. The true shit. I woke up this morning and it was 13 degrees, with windchills dancing around zero. I look at that and think, Man, that's cold, but then I remember that there will come a time, a few months from now, when I'll see 13 on the thermometer and think Heat Wave!
So I stand outside with my jacket unzipped and I breathe deep, let the cold air in, let the frost into my lungs. Winter is a clean time, a hard season, and it makes you or it breaks you. So let the cold in.
