well, already, in only January, I've heard several people saying how they are so ready for winter to be over. It's easy to get into a winter rut, I understand, but c'mon. It's only January, and we do, in fact, live in the Midwest, namely Iowa, known for unpredictable weather and long, COLD winters, and terribly hot, humid summers. It just comes with the territory. It can't come as much of a surprise to anyone that yeah, it's freezing cold, and yeah, it's snowing again, or whatnot. Might as well embrace it, and maybe even try to enjoy it! i LOVE winter!!
neighborhood fun; notice Ben, inside the fort!
