We recently, for the first time in 25 years, went 8 straight days without seeing the sun. 

Sometimes you need help getting through the winter in northern Illinois. Hopefully this new drone footage I found of Starved Rock State Park can remind you how nice the area can be in months not named December, January, or February.

We've almost made it through January and February is the shortest month of the year. Before you know it you'll be filling out March Madness brackets and getting ready for Easter.

Side note: I can't get enough drone footage. I'd watch a drone fly over corn fields. Actually I think I have. I know not everything's great in the world right now but as long as people keep putting up cool videos of their drones in action, I'll be alright.
