Winter in Minnesota is ….. cool. We know its coming, the deep freeze, but when it arrives it is still a shock. Wake up in the morning, look outside and you can just tell its cold. The frost between the storm windows is up higher than usual. As the sun rises the light has a different quality. There are special days where it doesn’t get above zero…. This is supposed to be one of those days.
Lake Superior steams in the heavy cold.
It’s not easy living in the north in the winter, it can be dangerous to people, pets, and machines. Vehicles sometimes don’t want to work and they are usually slow to start. It is unique though. The cold keeps us northerners hearty and strong and there are some who like the cold. It’s distinctive and different, and it gives us something to talk about in the mid-summer heat. Today is one of those days.
Stay warm neighbors.
