It can be winter right up to Jan 1st 2018.
Afterwards....it can piss off for another year. :up:

And ... Thursday, December 21 is the Winter Solstice (the day we have the least hours of sunlight). Therefore, starting Friday December 22 the daylight minutes start increasing again. :up:

We had snow twice so it's over and RVing weather can come anytime! :smt045
I have never tried Yoga but I bent over to pick up my keys once so I'm pretty sure I wouldn't like it.

So far I've been disappointed of the lack of cold temperatures & no snow. May as well be Spring

I don't mind winter here. It's not like winter from the steppe wasteland I spawned in. [icon_lol2.gif]

Completely agree. Over the last 2 years the city has approved 8 different alley access houses along government st and I have yet to see this alley maintained yet this year. The ice ruts on here now are unreal.
