Winter arrives at 12:11 PM Eastern Time this Saturday, and it will last for three long months. Spring doesn’t arrive until March 20th at 12:57 PM Eastern Time. We’re all familiar with the phrase the winter blues, but how do you get through the dark, cold months without getting the doldrums? On this week’s Cityscape, we’re looking at ways to avoid letting the winter get the best of you. We’ll be talking with a clinical psychiatrist about ways to beat “cabin fever,” as well as simply searching out fun things to do to get your mind off the cold.

But there’s also a downside to being that “connected,” especially for kids who may not be aware of how their Internet activity is going to affect them in the future.
