Well it must be winter.  Almost overnight (literally Sunday into Monday this week) I went from feeling normal to having chap lips and cracked hands. 

How does this happen so suddenly?  I love the distinct beauty of the Treasure Valley.  I love our weather (and certainly appreciate our humidity-free dry heat summers) so I guess the price to pay is the dry winters wreaking some havoc on my hands.

The only downside?  I HATE the feeling of lotion and balms.  Can't stand them.  For now though, the need to heal up is winning, and my slightly slimy reality is my reminder it's winter time.

What's yours?  You know it's winter when ____________________?
