Every mile is two in winter. ~George Herbert
The history of this 131-year-old custom is a great example of actual fake news.
But, people hold tightly to traditions and long-held beliefs for a variety of reasons; the scientific facts not being one of them!
Despite Phil’s announcement, I’m predicting ten more weeks of winter. March comes in like a lion and sometimes goes out that way. I don’t feel we’ve seen the last of winter until we’re safely into April.
In the meantime, stay warm! 🙂
