Only one month into winter and I’m wanting to be done with it. We’ve got a trip scheduled to go south to the gulf but it’s a month away yet. It’s the little things they say. Winter here is cold. It is dark more often than light. It can be sad if the battery in the car dies. The furnace goes out. Hot water heater leaks. Winter is here. This is the time to keep your shields up. Keep defense strong. Be resilient. Stand strong against the things that could wear you down. The walkers are not coming, but spring is.
