We’re only a few days into the new year and already it seems like 2011 has been with us forever.

Murder, robberies, snowstorms, winter weather advisories, controversies surrounding the school board and the usual griping against VDoT.

A new Congress is in session and they are already griping like the old one.

Sports seasons are underway.

The Superbowl is next month. So of the Daytona 500.

Welcome to 2011.
