Temperature this morning sits at -5 degrees.  Geez, I love Minnesota!

My landlord is not going to be happy when I tell him that the new furnace for the building is not keeping up.  I should not have to wear long johns in the house.

We Minnesotans feel that it is our God-given right to complain about the weather.  I mutter under my breath as I dig in my closet for a flannel shirt.  I will mutter just as much in the summer when the heat and humidity both approach 95.  We have two days the end of May and another two days in September when the weather is perfect.  Other than that....not so much.

I sure must love my kids and grandkids, for they are the only reason I am here.

All things considered, that's a pretty good reason.


  1. Can you hear it? FLorida Florida Florida...or not...Just teasin ya girl! Kids, Grandkids are perfect reasons.....

  2. Oh, I do hear that siren song! Sandy beaches...ocean breezes...sigh. I have before lived in warmer climates, but I just don't have the heart to get that far away from family any more.
