Back to life...back to reality. The holidays are officially over. I wish we could say the same thing for Winter, but unfortunately, it's just getting started. 

Starting right after Halloween, we expect (even wish for) the weather to be cold and snowy. It just doesn't feel like Christmas unless everyone is bundled up and skidding their way to Grandma's house on poorly plowed roads. 

Once the festivities are over, however, I'm ready to unbundle. I start having waking dreams about the warm sun, beaches, and barbecues on the back porch. Too bad there are at least two months of Winter's frigid temperatures and terrible driving conditions left to endure. Maybe more.

If you woke up depressed and freezing today, there's some solace in knowing you're not the only one who can't handle the cold. These creatures are over it too (and most of them have FUR).
