IQ: Let it snow 

The first time I was ever whitewashed was on a cold Halloween when I was about 12. Some big kids decided they'd rather introduce me to the experience of having snow inside your shirt than go door to door for candy. It took me a while to get over it, but since then, I've come to really appreciate winter. It's the best time of year to snuggle into a cozy blanket and read a good book or get outdoors and work up a sweat in the brisk air. And a chilly winter evening is one of the best times for romance.
