I just realized today one of the things I don't like about winter is the lack of bonfires. I guess fireplaces are an option, but it's not quite the same. I would kill for a beer around a fire with a few close friends right now.
It's very nice. It's one of the reasons NC winters are great. It gets a bit cold, but nothing a fire can't handle. Michigan is just way too cold for a bonfire at night in February. Beer, bonfire, music and other people = awesome.
