Extreme cold when it first arrives seems to generate cheerfulness and sociability.

For a few hours all life’s dubious problems are dropped in favor of the clear and congenial task of keeping alive.”

- E. B. White (“Cold Weather,” 1944)


Daylight Savings Time ends Sunday—we “fall back,” enjoy an extra hour’s sleep, and wake up in the dark.

The relentless march of time makes leaves to change color, and forces each day’s temperatures lower.  

Will Rogers said we shouldn’t complain about the weather, since “it gives us something to talk about.”

The brisk air will change in seven weeks, as we shiver while winter makes its annual reappearance.

Winter does bring its challenges, but there are blessings—hot tea, sweaters, and fireplaces.

Hopefully, we will never have to struggle just to stay alive in a situation of extreme cold.

But when the north wind blows and the snow falls, we can enjoy huddling together.


“As long as the earth remains,

There will be springtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, day and night.”

(Genesis 8:22 NLT)
