Winter has arrived

Well, today, November 21th, Winter has officially started!
Today’s been rainy all day… I like rain, but only if I am home and I can listen to the sound of the raindrops against the window. I like to walk under the rain if it’s not a downpour and it’s not windy :p
I took this pics with my camera, and due to bad weather I had to use a ISO 200, meaning… awfull quality >< But I think I mostly fixed it with photoshop (Finger tool).
If Ilea was my Autumn girl… maybe Allen is my Winter boy?
