We are off to a very cold start as we get hit with a second winter (is that a thing, 'cause it seems to be a thing). Well, we certainly are in for a frosty weekend, and I, for one, say good!

Before we get to the hijinks, let me explain why I think this is good. Last year we barely had a hard freeze. This year's freeze might be sufficient to kill whatever out there that needs to be killed from pollen-laden plants to mosquitos. Just go die, you sensitive to cold weather things, I've had enough of you.

One more thing: please take this cold seriously for you and your pets. Your doggie may pee on your carpet by bringing him inside, but that's a whole lot better than having a dead doggie outside. Keep everybody and everything warm this weekend.
