Song for a Winter's Night

Dear John,
It's another late night - it will be tomorrow soon. But I get to take tomorrow off since I worked yesterday, so there's no hurry to get to bed.
I finally got to sleep at 2:30 this morning, what with working late and computer trouble. I woke up at 8, got up, and looked at Weather Bug to find out that it was -3 outside. It got up to 17 today, and now we're under another Winter Weather Advisory. We're in the area to get around 5 more inches of snow tomorrow and Saturday.
If I do get snowed in, I have over a gallon of milk and plenty of work to do. I could be snowed in for two months without running out of work that needs to be done around here. It was much nicer to get snowed in with you. Long winter nights don't seem right without you to cuddle with. But then, nothing seems right without you.
This conversation has gotten completely out of hand. I was going to tell you about work today, and standing in the freezing wind putting gas in the car, and going to work without my lunch or my phone. But all I can think about now is Gordon Lightfoot singing Song for a Winter's Night:
If I could only have you near to breathe a sigh or two, I would be happy just to hold the hands I love on this winter night with you.

I miss you on these long cold nights, and I love you with all my heart,
