January, where have you been all my life!!!

January, where have you been all my life!!!

   Unless you are one of the lucky few that live on the coast where the sun shines at a balmy 72 degrees on the coldest of winter days, you're probably thinking, "HAS TL GONE MAD?!" Yes, I live for the beach and warm days where it doesn't get dark until 8 o'clock. This January madness has me on edge. I am okay with this week though, it's unseasonably warm with highs near 70!
