Claire on Winter

Claire and I were talking about the summer ending and fall, and eventually winter, coming on.  I told Claire the days would get cooler and maybe wetter, and it would get dark earlier in the day.  After a while, it would even be dark when she wakes up and dark well before bed time, even before she comes home from school.

“That sounds pretty nice!”, Claire said hopefully.  Then after a pause, “But not really nice.”  That is as good of a summary of winter in central Texas as I have ever heard.
