A few reasons why winter can be a good thing:
to see migrating geese and other waterfowl.
2. You get a whole new perspective on nature,
3. You get a chance to see new little critters;
I am told this is a muskrat.
Now that makes me think of the song Muskrat Love...
without the 'crowds' of the warmer seasons.
And, as you can see,
the weather isn't always bad in winter...
but the views can be very interesting.
