Here the seasons are simple and straightforward. A certainty. I like that very much. Texas Octobers raise questions like, “Will we have snow this year? Will it freeze? Will there be a winter at all?” Who knows? Certainly not the weathermen.
And we are a simple, straightforward people who have no need for questions like these. We have unpacked our boots and winter gear because we know we will soon be needing them. Before long, two or so weeks, the temperatures will plummet and the snow will fall. The snow will blanket the land and we won’t see the earth again until May.
Simple, straightforward living. That is a certainty.
