Well, we made it past the halfway point of winter. The middle of January is the time when our average daily high temperatures begin to push upwards and we actually see some sunshine past 5 p.m.


It has not been easy to make it this far. In January alone we had seven days when temperatures did not make it above zero degrees Fahrenheit. Most recently we struggled through this extreme cold on Monday and Tuesday, and on those days school children were told to stay home.
