When C. S. Lewis wrote that winter would never end while Narnia was controlled by evil, he immediately engaged the sympathy of every reader living where there are four seasons. Winter has its beauty and benefits. A deep layer of snow just before daytime temperatures begin to rise helps to produce more sap in the maples for syrup. Crops need the moisture from snow on the fields, and skiers and snowboarders love the white stuff. But the time comes, when it's enough... enough cold, enough snow, enough winter.
Bulbs begin to sprout around the edge of the snow heaped on the gardens. Puddles replace icy patches on driveways and sidewalks. Water flows in open patches of streams and rivers. When a puddle makes me happy, I know I've had enough winter.
