Dog Days of Summer Winter

At least in Minnesota, the Dog Days of Winter come a little earlier than their Summer counterpart — presumably, because Winter here starts so early.

But by early February — or whenever the snow on the ground turns more grey than white — you know they’re here.

Along with the lengthening days and stronger sun, they’re also a lot more welcome.

P.S.:  and no, Groundhog Day in the Upper Midwest isn’t between just a little more Winter and a full six weeks; it’s more like six weeks vs. ten or twelve.
