What does the cold look like in Charleston?
There is no snow to herald the cold weather here. There are even blue skies & sunshine, but when the temperature drops, it is indeed cold. These old southern houses were not built for this kind of winter weather, which makes it seem all the more cold inside as well as out. When the pipes freeze & the power goes out, well there isn't much to do but curl up under a warm of blanket & read a book ( a real book ).
Or you could always bundle up & go out for a very brisk walk.
I hope where ever you are, that you are staying warm.
If you are looking for some books for winter reading you might find something here.
I can only vouch for
The Hundred Foot Journey
which I read last summer, while the filming of it took place in
And the wonderful book
Wild by Cheryl Strayed.
I read it two summers ago & loved it.
Also, because I am a big fan of the Laura Ingalls Wilder's "Little House" books, I found this entertaining. I am not making a judgement here, just enjoyed thinking about cold winters in the past.
Stay warm everybody!
