    Winter is half over!

    (I post this every year!

    Today is January 15th..this marks the half-way point of winter for those of us in the Northern US and Canada!

    How do I figure that?
    easy..Winter is 5 months long..it is the entire months of November, December, January, February and March..So January 15th is half way..
    two and a half months down, two and a half months to go!

    Plus this year is a leap year so that's 2 days less of winter we have to endure

    It's in the 50s here though, I can handle this kind of winter anytime!

    LOL! We are reputed to have two seasons in Western NY: winter and construction!

    Dunkirk Dave and Punxatawney Phill will be expressing their opinions in 5 days.

    Bill Murray will be listening to, "I Got You Babe" endlessly, until he develops some altruistic motives.

    According to the Late George Carlin: "Tonight's forecast: Dark..."

    Reality: It's raining where me and Scot are!


    Seriously, by photoperiod / Winter Solstice, we're only about 3.5 weeks into winter. By temperature, the statistical daily average puts us about a week away from the coldest day of the year. Temps follow the defined seasons by about a month.

    Only halfway? I thought winter was supposed to end with a white Christmas and then it was over right? That was all I agreed to. What is this?
