Happy 2021!

We made it! 2020 is finally in our collective rearview mirror, and we’re all ready for a better, brighter new year.

But, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Before you throw away that mask in celebration, remember, 2020 wasn’t some magical board game Chris Van Allsburg dreamed up in the book “Jumanji.” All of the horrible things that happened during 2020 aren’t going to be erased just because it’s over. We’re still going to have to wear our masks and socially distance for a while longer, as we patiently wait for everyone to receive the vaccine.

And what’s the perfect time of year for us to wait for this all to come to an end? I’d wager that it’s winter. This season’s outdoor activities — skiing, snowmobiling and snowshoeing — are mostly socially distanced and have specific guidelines designed to keep you safe. And because it’s cold out — most people already are accustomed to wearing scarves or neck gaiters while doing these activities.

We’re going to get through this. It’s just going to take some time and patience.
And then, we can all celebrate, together.

Until then, remember, you are not alone. We’re all in this together.
