    "We forget that winter is the dry season. As water retreats to its prison of ice, the danger to life is not cold, but thirst. Arid ice-age winters shaped earth's northern ecologies, with hibernation and winter migration evolving in response to the winnowing cold that scoured our ancient landscapes to the bone. But winters, like ice ages, are Janus faced, fo after the freeze come thaw and flood, as water returns to liquid life and movement. Freeze, thaw, flood: the great climatic cycles that carved the topography of the northern hemisphere, and which continue to shape the idea of winter that lies deep in our cultural imagination..." Extrait de "Winter" par Richard Hamblyn.
