I call this time of year the "January Doldrums."

We're in a post holiday lull.  Not much is happening.  The news cycle slows a bit.  The dead of winter has arrived.  There's not a whole lot of outdoor activities.

Until the pandemic put the brakes on everything, I thought we were making progress toward eliminating the January Doldrums, especially on weekends.  It seems like winter carnivals and ice festivals were popping up all over the place, and I thought that was great.  Some remain.  We need more.  There is a huge entertainment void to fill.  Going to a movie or watching TV just doesn't cut it.

If and when all of this ends, it would be nice to see winter entertainment gain traction again.
