Much of the country is experiencing a severe cold snap. The past few days we've had blizzards, below zero wind chills. The worst is yet to come.
What to do during these bone-chilling winter days? Think warm thoughts, coin people...
Read about that certain coin or series you enjoy but cannot afford, and allow yourself to dream.
Recall the nice purchases you've made. That overdate Buffalo nickel that completed a set. That gorgeous Morgan dollar you couldn't resist. That great discovery in a junk box. That unusual coin you got in change or found in a bank roll.
Maybe chat with a friend about the good times you've had in numismatics. The conventions. The trips to a big show. Remember wandering the bourse floor, meeting people in person, seeing beautiful coins.
Spring and summer will come eventually. You will get out and enjoy again. Until then, keep warm with good thoughts, dreams and plans.
And always, enjoy your hobby.
