Let's do the math. Meteorological winter consists of December, January, and February. That means winter is now half over!
We've already had plenty of snow and ice, but I do have to warn you that you shouldn't plant the onions just yet.
Statistically speaking, the last two weeks of January are the coldest of the year. We've had some whopper snow storms in February and March. April snow is not unusual.
But the days are getting longer and you can feel the sun getting a little stronger.
Half the battle is fought and won.
