Bell Grove Ramsey Lake Early Winter S. Koren 2007


"The word winter comes from an old Germanic word that means "time of water" and refers to the rain and snow - as well as low temperatures - of the season in middle and high latitudes. In the Northern Hemisphere, it is commonly regarded as extending from the winter solstice (the year's shortest day), December 21 or 22, to the vernal equinox, the start of Spring. The word winter came into English c 888." www.dictionary.reference.com

"It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade."
  Charles Dickens

"Nature is full of genius, full of the divinity; so that not a snowflake escapes its fashioning hand." Henry David Thoreau
