February 2019

The Winter Stall

Numerically, February is the shortest month. Psychologically, it slogs along like a clueless lazy-ass traipsing through the calendar. February owns all of winter. We might as well X-off all other months capable of unrelenting snow and temperatures that make ice, and call every bit of it “February,” the 212-day month. Winter has stalled and there’s no end in sight.
 
For our region, February is that time of year when we’re as winter-conditioned as we’re going to get.
