I like to daydream. More time to do that in the winter.

Righto, there's April, then May & If you add June, you have the names of Daisy's three nieces. I think April had a thing for Huey, & maybe June for Louie, but May & Dewy went kablooie. He might have ended up as an apprentice for the Donald.

I see the LJW made it back online, noticed the school district website was also down. Was this a planned down time by Knology or just failure on their part?

Don"t mind the Christmas part, but NOT the next 2-3 months.......I need the WARM sun. Winter is depressing.

The food and the family is fun. As for the rest, meh. I hate cold weather. Of course, that's why all the solstice celebrations started, making sure the sun was really coming back and the days were getting longer after the solstice. Still a long way to spring.

January and February are the worst months of the year by far. February really sucks after the Super Bowl is over.

Surfed around & found these Fun Facts about Winter (from multiple sources):

22 Dec. is the first full day of it for us Northies with the sun furthest away, hanging out over the Tropic of Capricorn.

The world’s biggest snowflake fell on January 28, 1887, in Ft. Keogh, Montana. It was 15 inches across and 8 inches thick. The runner up was one that fell in Bratsk, Siberia, almost a century later (1971) – it measured 8 by 12 inches.

Hailstones are built like onions – the layers count the number of times it traveled to the top of the storm before falling to the ground.

Hoping for a mild winter as we’re low on firewood. Could chop up the piano, but that’s only a couple of chords.

Just some fun in the cold - follow @winterblowsalot
