The good news is February 3, and the number 10. On the surface these two may seem to have little in common but in reality they are linked in a very powerful way. For this is the day that we climb back over 10 hours of natural light for a day. This matters because 10 hours of light is the length needed for plants to really start growing again. Lower than that they are mostly dormant unless given a little help (aka artificial lights).
Of course we are still in winter, we still have clouds, we still have cold -- but it is one more indication that we are inching towards spring, though on days like this it is hard to tell.
