We don't and don't plan on it too. We are waiting and checking the extended forecast everyday. Looks like we are in for another extended cold front. With that being said patience good things are coming yet.

I don't either but the third week of January was unusually warm. Enough for me to start gathering any supplies and planning out this year.

Well the cold is back and also the snow. Yes we usually try and start getting prepared in Jan so that we are ready to go in Mid-February. Doesn't always work out that way but it's what we try and do. Just have as much ready when the season hits as possible.
