There's good news, and bad news. The good news is that the days start to get longer as of today! The bad news is that it's been a pretty snowy, not so mild winter so far, so I suspect this year that winter is just getting started on us, and there's going to be a lot snow and cold temperatures this year1. But one takes the good with the bad. :)
Winter weather. Bah, humbug!
1 But we don't need to be worried about climate and environmental change! Right!!!
