43. Winter will be hard, but it will also harden people's committment and resolve
And harsh winter in most areas is still a couple of months away. There is still a lot of time left for momentum to grow. Meanwhile the connections are being made, activist networks are growing. Spring could be explosive. This is all happening in the context of a Presidential election year also.
