Midwest Wintery Mix

I had never heard of this 'wintery mix' weather until I moved to Missouri. In Colorado, where I grew up, it was either sun, wind, rain, or snow and sometimes sleet that usually turned into snow. But out here you get a combination of the rain/sleet/slush/snow that is just horrible. It's awful on the roads even if it doesn't really accumulate much because it ices over so fast. Either way, I'm glad to be home today and not out driving.

But the 'wintery' weather also makes for a gloomy day. Some might be discouraged by this, but I'm looking forward to a cup of hot chocolate and cuddling into my couch to do some editing on my novel or read a few more chapters in the book I'm working on now.

How do you make the most of a wintery day?

Hey- This is Meggan from TN. I was Laura Moore, now Judd's, roommate at Fugal Hall. Michal said you live in St. Louis too now. Let me know if you ever want to do lunch or get together. It would be good to see a familiar face. You can email me back at if that's something you'd be interested in.
p.s. -love the book reviews. I am going to start reading some of your books from last year. I am always looking for a good read. -Megg
