Good morning Wilderness! If you live in the metro area, or anywhere south I don’t have to tell you about the weather. If you live anywhere else, you probably don’t want to hear about it either. That being the case, I won’t bore you all with the details. It snowed, a lot.

Now I think like a lot of you, I’m just getting off the roller coaster that was the final 2 weeks of the Vikings season. The inevitability of it all should have had us all well prepared. Alas, that damn team has a way of sinkings its teeth into you and not letting go. Heartbreaking as it was, it is just a sports match. At this point I’m much more disappointed in how some fans in Philly conducted themselves, pure garbage.

There is not much else to say. Queue the music. Today’s music comes to you from across the pond. A little group you may have heard of before, but if not that’s ok and you’re welcome for us introducing them to you today. Please welcome to the virtual stage, Catfish and the Bottlemen!
