Yesterday was such a beautiful day for January. The January thaw came early as the temperatures rose to nearly 60 degrees. This, one week to the day when temperatures were around 15 below zero. I went out to get my paper on the front step and I could hear birds chirping, the sun was shining and the temperatures were warming. It was such a nice start to a Sunday morning. Life was good! That all ended when I opened my Sunday Quincy Herald Whig and on the front page are the mug shots of 53 people arrested last year for methamphetamine related incidents.
