(Spoilers Extended) GRRM: "I am spending long hours every day on THE WINDS OF WINTER...and I still have a long way to go"
GRRM is out with a new blog entry and it seems to be his most comprehensive status update in a while. Some quotations of note:
>Yes, I am in an actual cabin in the mountains. No, I have no fever. Yay! For the present at least, I am healthy… for an out-of-shape guy of 71, at least … and doing all I can to stay that way.
For those who don't know, GRRM's cabin in the mountains is a hideaway he's been in at various times since at least the end of last year. He goes there when he needs to get away from any distractions and work on his current project.
>If nothing else, the enforced isolation has helped me write. I am spending long hours every day on THE WINDS OF WINTER, and making steady progress. I finished a new chapter yesterday, another one three days ago, another one the previous week. But no, this does not mean that the book will be finished tomorrow or published next week. **It’s goi

How did Soviet soldiers stay warm at night while bivouacking the field in winter? Did they have large heated tents? Platoon-sized cuddling in cold? Or were their sleeping bags/bedrolls really warm enough to make sleeping in the field not much different than any other army?

Oh my gossh Winter is gorgeous! Woke up to snow on the ground and snowflakes falling ❄️
I’d much rather be freezing cold in the Winter than boiling hot in the Summer.
I prefer the cold weather in the Fall/Winter than the hot weather in the Summer.
The Summer does have it’s benefits, no school, pools/lakes/waterparks open, etc. But (depending on the area), mosquitoes and wasps and other pests can be everywhere, which I don’t really vibe with. But in the Fall and Winter, those start to die down, and It gets cooler outside.
It’s just easier to be cold, cause you can just bundle up and be a little sack of comfortableness. But when you’re hot, you can’t do so much. Of course, AC exists, but due to energy conservation and money reasons, you can’t always have it on.
In conclusion, I like the cold during the Winter and Fall because I just enjoy being chilly more than being all sweaty and gross during the heat of the summer.
Travel photographer Sarah Bethea captured this breathtaking photo last winter in Iceland of a setting sun’s golden rays entering an ice cave and turning a section of the cave’s ice amber.

(Spoilers Extended) The gap between A Dance with Dragons and The Winds of Winter will be longer than the gap between A Game of Thrones and A Feast for Crows
A Game of Thrones was released August 1996 and Feast was released November 2005, making a gap of 9 years and 4 months.
A Dance with Dragons was released July 2011, which means a gap of 9 years and 4 months would have Winds released in October of this year, which is now disproven by GRRM's recent post.
Even if he submitted a manuscript today, it would take at least three months to edit, publish, and distribute Winds, assuming that the publishers rushed the release as they would have if he'd made his end-of-2015 deadline. That means that the only way the game between ADWD and TWOW would be shorter than the gap between AGOT and AFFC is if he gives them a finished book within the next few weeks, and that ain't happening.
Comrades... My logo got accepted ! We have won the civil war ! Suprise for Winter as a thank you gift...? 👀

Winter clothes are infinitely more stylish that summer clothes
Not much to add. I'm a guy, so seeing a girl across the street with leather boots and a nice fabric coat it's way sexier than the same girl on a bikini. Same with seeing girls on Instagram: does pretty little for me when they are wearing a bikini or anything similar.
Edit: I said bikinis as an example. This applies to dresses, short shorts or anything else.

Let's talk fall and winter preps
I live in Texas, and things are getting crazy here. Hospitalizations have doubled in the last week, and people are starting to freak out. Yesterday, the governor hinted at another lock down, if we can't get this turned around. IMO, to undo the damaged caused by opening too early, it's going to take more than a couple months to get it back under control. On top of that, I fear civil unrest in November, because of the US Presidential election (regardless of who wins).
In the spring, I put a lot of thought into prepping my home and family for summer, and I'm so glad I did. Now, I need to plan for the fall and winter.
Anyone have any tips? What are you getting ready for another (potentially) long lock down that could stretch into the coming seasons?
