Not so wild winter


This winter's lack of snow has either been a Godsend or a mood killer, depending on who you ask — there are some backyard ice rink builders on page XX who aren't thrilled about the mild weather. But whether you are enjoying the unusual weather or cursing the missed chances to go sledding, it's still winter in Rochester and there are unique events and opportunities to take advantage of.

We admit that when we planned this year's Winter Guide, we expected colder temperatures and a little more snow. Still, we hope the articles in this year's edition give you some ideas about how to make the most of the days left until spring.

If you're itching to move and want to let off some steam, check out page XX for Kathy Laluk's look at indoor trampoline dodgeball. It's dodgeball ... on trampolines. And it's a lot of fun.

When the weather does get chillier, remember to flip back to page XX for dining writer Dave Budgar's recommendations for some of the best Asian soups in town.

And as much as it can become a burden when it snows heavily, the winter weather can inspire some truly wonderful pieces of art. On page XX, Rebecca Rafferty walks you through eight pieces of winter-inspired works.

Also, check out page XX for 16 fun things to look forward to in the first quarter of 2016 — from big-name musicians and comedians coming our way to a literary bus tour through Rochester.
