If there is no snow on the ground and the ground is not frozen, it is a good time to pull weeds.

With many of the bulbs, re-seeding annuals and herbaceous perennials still in winter hibernation, any weeds you may have in your garden will be sticking out like a sore thumb right now.

Regular walks around the garden will reward you not only with fresh signs of new growth appearing but will also expose those opportunistic pesky bad weeds who always like to gain the upper hand on the good plants by showing up early. Just make sure you are pulling an actual weed and not a self-seeded desirable perennial.
