"In the bleak mid-winter, Frosty wind made moan, Earth stood hard as iron,Water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, Snow on snow, Snow on snow, In the bleak mid-winter, Long ago"
Christina Rosetti 1872
There is an old saying that goes 'when the day begins to lengthen, the cold begins to strengthen.' So even though the nights are getting shorter and the hours of sunlight are longer, we have several months of winter ahead of us still.
