open winter
 n.— «This was partly because Leavenworth was enjoying an “open winter”—meaning the severe weather had relented often enough on weekends to grant safe passage to tourists traveling east from Seattle.» —“In the Ruins of a Shop Full of Treats, a Blessing” by Dan Barry in Leavenworth, Washington New York Times Apr. 6, 2009.
