Beware the Pogonip

December 17th in my Farmer's Almanac warns: "Beware the Pogonip". Using my high tech analog dictionary, I have discovered that "Pogonip" is a dense icy winter fog (from the Shoshone language) that hangs in Western US Valleys. Well, Minnetonka may not reside in a western valley, but we do get foggy winter days. So now, along with "seasonal affected dissorder" presenting our psychies with the shortest of days* and least sunlight hours, we have the Pogonip.
