“We often hear of bad weather, but in reality, no weather is bad. It is all delightful, though in different ways. Some weather may be bad for farmers or crops, but for man all kinds are good. Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating. As Ruskin says, “There is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.” ~John Lubbock, “Recreation,” The Use of Life, 1894
I decided to take a stroll into Downtown D.C. on my day off from school, while the snow was still falling. It’s amazing how snow can change an entire outlook on such a familiar setting.
