Three cheers for February. It's the short month. That makes it special. It could easily be thirty days long just by shaving a day off of, say, July and October. Then the leap day could occur in February, April, June, July, September, October, or November. We could even rotate through them creatively. Three cheers for February. It's as close to the middle of winter as possible. Why are the three months after the solstice so much colder than the three months before? Anyone know? Seems to be they should be the same. Maybe there's saved heat. Three cheers for February.
