I can tolerate winter. But only under two types of conditions. Extreme or very mild. I would like to either be fishing right now or basking in the power of a vigorous winter storm. Right now it is just cold and cloudy. I know most people hate winter's adverse weather, it does inconvenience a lot of people. But I am a nature lover, and that includes here extremes. Summer and winter, I will be peaking out the window and looking over weather models for the next big storm. To keep preoccupied, I look back on those long passed.
