Now that it’s mid-January, the lingering consequences of the festive season are starting to disappear. Folks in Edmonton have recovered from their food hangovers, and even their bank accounts are starting to fill up again. As people start to look forward to the coming year, and the warm weather that will hopefully be coming with it, the end of 2012 becomes a cozy memory, in spite of our harsh winter.
