This morning was cold outside – frosty with cold crispy air. Hard to believe it will soon be another 40 – 50 degrees colder and snowy! A friend of mine sent me the following words on Minnesotans and cold weather a few years ago. Not sure who wrote it but it is generally true about how we in Minnesota handle the cold weather. After reading this you will understand why in March people are running around in the snow wearing their shorts!
