Mother Nature is powerful. With the temperatures plummeting, it seems as if everyone is just searching for a place to warm up. But in the midwest, especially, you have to grow an extra layer of skin to bare the cold. This layer is purely made of will to protect us from the wind. But the best part about the chilling cold is the reassurance that soon it will be warm and flowers will bloom... when we can shed our second skin and experience the world again, the sun beaming down to brighten our day.
