Words From Jerry
I had 17.5" of snow on January 16th into the early 17th. The rest of the month had no snow and with a little mild temperatures much of the old snow melted away. I hope February is the same.
Nothing news on Jerry's health, but at least he's not in the hospital.

If you are looking for the warmest solution
in terms of your hands and fingers during the winter,
it is better to go with mittens compared to gloves.
More of the body's warmth is retained with mittens
since they create a much larger air pocket compared to gloves.

Bright Nights

Nights are typically brighter under a fresh snow cover, especially when there is a low cloud cover.
Any light gets bounced back and forth between the clouds and the brightly colored snow.
