Medium Range.

There's a little cloud off to our far south, but mainly what we're seeing out there is a high still blue sky, a chilly day, though certainly not a cold one. There's heat in that sun even in sock feet on the back porch. Resolution: split kindling the night before. We're on day one of that. Resolution: take the dog outside more. We'll be on day one of that as soon as the morning's work comes to some manner of close. And as if on cue, the dog arrives at the back door, looking in. Resolution: pay attention to which side of the door the dog's on. We'll update progress on that one tomorrow.

The dog has a pretty full winter coat in, which is what amounts to a long-range forecast around these parts, so I'm saying that unless I see my shadow some time soon, we're in for at least six more weeks of winter. We're for sure in for a weekend of it: more than one professional outfit says we won't break 40 Saturday or Sunday. May get a little burst of something through Friday night, may squeeze a little snow out of that. We shall see. All that's a long and longer way off. For now: make sure the curtains and blinds are open on the south and west sides of the house. Let some of that good winter light and heat in. Take from January what it gives us.
