flickr faves - winter wonderland

Why does it feel like it's winter already? I read on the weather reports that it was going to snow in Portland! Now, that's just crazy for this time of year. I'm not a fan of snow; I don't really like to go out because I hate being cold! I'd rather stay inside, and enjoy the view outside my window. I love seeing the snowflakes fall, and seeing the pureness of untouched snow. What's your favorite part of winter?
