You know how every so often, you hear a song that just grabs your brain and heart and you can't stop listening to it even though maybe the kids are about ready to rip out their ears and/or pummel you with sippy cups?

At first I just really dug the tune, but after a second listen, it struck me that hey, this was winter like I remember it. And like I kind of miss, at times, these days. That day long falling snow, the "pottering around in a dark house", but also the weird coziness inherent. Anyway, here is a video someone put together to the song:
