JANUARY 2017

January is the worst winter month weatherwise as far as I am concerned. Temperatures can get down to freezing several mornings this month. So perhaps, that is why so many events are indoors this time of year, except, of course for Soccer, whose players probably appreciate the cooler temps. By February, we are already warming up and looking forward to those shirtsleeve days again.
