Mitten Smitten?

"New snows and blue toes.  Snow spittin' if you're not mitten-smitten, you'll be frostbitten."
~The Old Farmer's Almanac~

Despite the cold and the snow, the beasties are having winter fun!
It is so much more fun to be smitten with snow from inside my cozy workroom.  Mittens are optional.

 It's going to be a  long winter!
