VA isn't so bad with winter, at least where I live. It rarely snows, and when it does its just fluff. The occasional times where its sleeted/iced over I just visit Lighty. But its freezing, so I have to get all bundled up and warm her up/cool her down really well. Then I normally stay for an hour in the bo's house to keep an eye on her and have some hot chocolate :]
However my "cold" isn't like most of you all's cold, haha. Its warm to you all.
