Yes, we are definitely experiencing winter here. The weather channel is calling for more snow/sleet/freezing rain, a.k.a. wintry mix, over the next few days for this area of Texas. I'm glad it is January because I would really be complaining if it was March. That is one of the reasons I didn't mind leaving IL a few years ago- the long winters! I remember the city pool never warmed up enough until July to actually enjoy the swimming. Of course, the pool there was the size of a football field so that might have had something to do with it. It was an awesome pool.
That's all I have to say for now. Maybe I will check back in later on today.
