It has been snowing all day, the first day of Interim. It's not so much as to blur your vision or even wet your hair. The snowflakes that fall are small and soft, and when you look to the sky, it is beautiful!
Winters at Calvin were a big concern when I came here. I absolutely love the heat, and gloomy winter days did not sound fun to me at all. I made sure to get a warm coat, boots, and I even brought a happy lamp to college! A warm coat and boots are definitely good things to have in Michigan, but I find that the snow reflects so much light that it lifts your spirits.
Winter is a wonder. The cold is not biting, but the hugs that are especially plenty today are warming for the body and soul!
