I think that the major cold snap has passed up north but I'm sure that you still don't have too many pretty colors going on outside so I thought that I'd provide some for you. In fact, it's been 70 degrees the past couple of days here and trending warmer. Hard to believe that we had a freeze just five days ago (or, at all).
Shameless plug: My cousin, Dave Clair, has a film on the National Geographic channel tonight at 10:00. He spent several weeks last year filming "Monster Fish of the Congo". Looks to be vedy, vedy interesting.
