As in most of Wisconsin, here in Door County we have been experiencing some very cold temperatures. It is true that the cold can be hard to face when we have to run outside to get something, or hop into a vehicle that has yet to warm up, but there is a positive side to these colder than cold temperatures. Here are some ways to see the positive in these negative temperatures!
1) The cold weather makes a great excuse to stay in bed a little longer, enjoying the warmth of the sun without the coldness of the air.
2) With the bitter cold it is easy to feel guilt free while staying indoors and enjoying a great book while sitting by a warm fire, or bundled up on the sofa.
3) The cold weather may keep us indoors, but it keeps us indoors together! Family time can flourish in the cold temperatures with great board games, tasty treats and little chats.
4) A fine warm dinner tastes even better. Sitting back with a nice glass of wine and a tasty entree while watching the weather outside is very satisfying!
Today on the Door Peninsula I saw a family out for coffee and hot chocolate at Base Camp coffee shop after a day of sledding on Hill 17. It was a reminder of how the winter can bring people together.
Here at High Point Inn the fireplace has been on and everyone’s gathered together. Puzzles have been put together, games of checkers and ping-pong have been going all day, the pool and hot tub have been active with families and everyone’s smiling!
So don’t let the weather get you down! This is the time for some quiet relaxation and family bonding!
