Thank goodness we're finally getting some actual cold. Thus far, we've had very little snow, and the lakes haven't even frozen yet. (No ice on the lakes in January? Unheard of!) Rumor has it that desperate ice fishermen have been rigging their tip-ups to float and then using a boat to put them out on the water. Not exactly sure how that would work, but I don't ice fish, nor am I an angler in any sense, so I guess I don't really care.
But finally some cold, which is a relief. As many of you know, I hate bugs, and the cold weather now will help keep bugs in check this spring. I've never been so hung up on cold winters before, but I've never lived in such a buggy house before. Not to mention the fact that cold winters were always a given, so I didn't have to worry about warm winters begetting plagues of earwigs.
