It’s January, a good month in many ways, but one that makes me (and lots of folks around here) watchful. Maybe, even a bit paranoid.

No wonder everyone seems to have a case of the sniffles! January temps rise and drop like a roller coaster. And that’s a problem when you live with Southern Architecture.
