Nothing is more fun during the summer months than hanging out with friends and family, especially in my neck of the woods. Winters are cold, icy, and treacherous where I live, so there’s not a lot of, “Hey. Want to meet up later?” It’s more, “Good God, I went to the grocery store and almost froze to death.”
