"Is it cold enough for you?"
That will be the greeting of the day. It was twenty below (for those of you who haven't had coffee--it's FIFTY-TWO below freezing) when we got up this morning. Minus 38, with windchill.
The dogs look at us like it's our fault.
The conventional answer is, "It could be worse."
And it has been. January 1996, it was THIRTY-FOUR BELOW. That is not windchill, but actual air temperature. Schools state-wide were closed--for cold.
This is why you hear about "Minnesota nice"----you never know who you will need to jump start your car or push you out of a snowbank.
Twenty below---it's what makes us Minnesotans.
