As the long winter approaches, a lot of us are divided on how we feel about that fact. Say what you will about the bitter cold and slippery streets, snow-covered fields and glistening icicles will always be beautiful, and for a lot of us, will always make us feel like kids again.

Many of us have already been hit by snow, and some didn’t just get a taste, they’ve gotten a three-course meal of the white stuff. Canada and the American far North have been buried in powder, while it has been a little wetter and more benign further South. Sooner or later, though, winter comes for us all. Just ask Old Nan.
