8b So Far, But Much More Winter to Come

My winter low, so far, is 16F, recorded way back on November 23rd. Technically, our autumn low!
January 15th marks the midway point of Meteorological Winter, so we still have a lot of cold ahead of us. The coldest week of the year typically being the 3rd/4th week of January.
So, I'll probably have to say bye to the 8b winter at some point. Would be happy to finish up in spring with an 8a or high 7b winter.
* In addition to our coldest night happening in November, that's also been our snowiest month this season.
