Indiana looks like winter. We have shared many pictures recently of our late fall in Downey. We still have fall colors and leaf-filled lawns.
In Indiana, where we are visiting friends, it looks and feels like winter. As we walked through the park down the street, it was quiet. The grass is mostly dead and yellowed, the trees are naked of leaves and the air holds a serious chill. (Tomorrow's weather forecast promises 1-2 inches of snow.)
"There is a privacy about it which no other season gives you.... In spring, summer and fall people sort of have an open season on each other; only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savor belonging to yourself."
