It’s February! I know. I know. Chalk one up for Ms. Obvious. But, here in the northern hemisphere we are still deeply in the throes of winter. As a matter of fact, today in Gobbler’s Knob, Pennsylvania, Punxsutawney Phil – the groundhog – predicted six more weeks of winter.
As much as I love sunny days and long to put the top down on my car and drive the canyons of Utah sans snow, I have to say that winter isn’t so very bad. Being stuck inside, out of necessity due to inclement weather, I find that I get a lot done, particularly family history. Apparently, a lot of you feel the same way. In January you keyed and arbitrated a grand total of 2.4 million records. Wow! Well done.
So, while I crave warmer weather for hiking and biking and picnics and playing, it’s exciting to see how much we are accomplishing indoors. Here’s to six more weeks of winter.
Until next time – Happy Keying!
