I really think this is the 1st year in quite a few that we are going to get a REAL MN winter! I forgot how dang cold and icky it can be........ugh! I want summer back......my doors to my car were frozen shut this morning (in the garage) and it took forever to get in just to warm up my car. Then it took me an 1 1/2 to get to work (we had a ice/snow strom yeasterday/last night) and it normally only takes me 40 minutes TOPS and that includes dropping the girls off........yuk yuk yuk........I know some people LOVE this but it is just not for me!!!!

just thought I would share

I'm a MN girl too! I had no real problems getting to work but it was cold -6 degrees this morning, I think it's now -5. I looked like a big marshmallow all dressed up in my winter gear. I have to walk 3 blocks downtown to get to my work....BRRRRRRRR

Im in MN too.  BOO HOO!!!   20 min from Rochester.  We didnt get the snow like up north but it is so cold.  It is always windy here so is usually colder than they say.  Even Red Wing isnt as windy as Zumbrota.  They say this is the 1st time in like 35 years that it has been so cold so early.  Im going to start the spring dance early this year!!!

Well, I'm not a MN girl but I am a MO girl and it's -15 degree wind chills here and is now 6 degrees.  YUCK!  I just moved back to the midwest from Va Beach where 40 was cold!  What the was I thinking?!
