Feels Like Winter

It feels like winter already although the official start is a few weeks away on Tuesday, December 21. We’ll go ahead and say it’s started (for all practical purposes).

You’ve probably already fired up the snow blower or got your plow guy set up to make the rounds. We all have our warm clothes on (not including the people that wear shorts all year).

Most of us have tracked down where you put your gloves and knot hat last year. It may have taken a little searching even though you thought you’d remember right where you stored all the cold weather gear.
