It is coolish here on The Mountain. The low last night was about 6 degrees. Tonight it may reach about 12 degrees. I know, that's not that cold for some of you, but it's pretty dadgum cold to me.
I actually like winter. It is great hiking weather when the temps are in the thirties or forties. Also, NO BUGS.
I hate bugs. Mosquitoes. Gnats. Flies. Really annoying. Chiggers are a real nuisance. Ticks are nasty and also are dangerous. The closest I ever came to dying from some disease was when I had Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever which is spread by ticks. 8 days in the hospital. I almost didn't make it.
Every season has its own charm. Spring is the beginning of things. Plant a garden. Watch the world come alive. Summer is baseball and picnics and vacation. Fall is the color of autumn and the beginning of football season. Winter is snow and a time for recharging the batteries and catching your breath. At least to me.
TOTD: What is your favorite season, and why? AND, what is your favorite place to be during that season, and your favorite activities?
Cycling in the Low Country of South Carolina during the spring or fall is my personal favorite. Eating shrimp and enjoying island life. Walking the beach. Taking it easy.
