Haiku Friday: Things to do in winter

Yeah, it's winter. Here in Minnesota, we just put on some more clothes and deal with it. Some people build a fire and hole up (which is what I am doing right at the moment), while others get out and have some fun in the snow (like my niece Alexa in the photo, from Christmas week in Michigan). 

Whatever it is you like to do, let's haiku about that this week. Here, I will go first:

I walk outdoors, night
And something about the snow
Makes the stars brighter.

Now it is your turn! Just use the 5/7/5 syllable formula, and have some fun!

Walking in the snow,
I leave a track upon which
I will not return.
Swoosh swoosh swoosh swoosh, ffffffft.
Skis glide over flats, downhill
Blissfully alone.
Frolicking snow flakes
Cup of cocoa, steam rising
A book beckons me
Ten degrees today
then forty eight tomorrow
Our snow quietly dies
