It’s winter, whether you’re in Russia or in Scotland or in the Northeastern USA. Frankly, we haven’t had an Old School Northeast Winter the last few years, Global Warming is no joke… we haven’t had a real sockdolager snowstorm here in the Capital District. Of course, it’s February soon, the last full month of the winter, but it’s often the most brutal, at least as far as temperatures go. We had a big snowstorm in late November 2014 here, but nothing big since. Shall we dodge the bullet? We’ll have to see…
