Everyone I’ve talked to has just about given up. I always used to joke that Minnesotans love to talk about the weather, but given that we’ve had over 50 nights below zero and almost as many days not reaching past 0 that weather has become a taboo topic, unless you’re looking to annoy people further.

Yesterday was reported to be the “last day under zero” for a bit, so fingers crossed that will actually be accurate.

Meanwhile, we haven’t come close to getting our fill of winter exercise and experiences, as it’s been too frigidly cold. Hopefully, if it actually “warms up” to around 20 or so we’ll be able to get back outside and explore.

Maybe it’s just me, but there is something demoralizing about taking a half an hour to bundle enough to be able to go outside. Especially if you can only be outside for 10 minutes before extremities go numb.

Here’s hoping for warmer weather!
