Happy New Year my friends!
How about that weather last night? 50 degrees and windy as all get out! But here we are, facing a new year in the cool calm morning of January 1st.
January is (on average) the coldest month of the year.
It's named for the Roman God Janus who is depicted having two faces - one to look at the past, another the future.
"A wet January, a wet spring."
A tradition of ours is to start the new year with a hike (go figure right) followed by pork and sauerkraut with family.
