February

Um, yeah. I think Ezra Pound must have wintered in Chicago:

Winter is icummen in,
Lhude sing Goddamm.
Raineth drop and staineth slop,
And how the wind doth ramm!
Sing: Goddamm.

Skiddeth bus and sloppeth us,
An ague hath my ham.
Freezeth river, turneth liver,
Damn you, sing: Goddamm.

Goddamm, Goddamm, 'tis why I am, Goddamm,
So 'gainst the winter's balm.

Sing goddamm, damm, sing Goddamm.
Sing goddamm, sing goddamm, DAMM.

There's a Winter Storm Warning out there right now, and I have the flu. Goddamn.

February is a beautiful month in Australasia well more precisely New Zealand...no colds down here or flu but we get raging stomach bugs here....nasty gastros flying all around...summer is the season for it I guess. Garlic is a great cure all if you can eat it raw on toast with marmite even better.
