Well, we missed this because of the “winter storm.” Anyway, they will still be very close for a few days.
From Sky and Telescope:
Saturday, January 10
Venus and Mercury are closest together this evening in twilight, 0.7° apart. Look low in the southwest about 45 minutes after sunset, as shown here. They’ll stay within 1° of each other through Monday.
