A day in the life . . .

I live in Minnesota.  
The frozen tundra.
Snow is expected.

Snow should not be a surprise to the people here.
Even snow that arrives on October 12th.
Yet, every year when the first flakes begin to fall,
the people here go nuts -- like it's  some novelty.

Some people here actually LIKE the snow.

There are some... like me.. and this deer ...that fully
grasp the logic that snow and cold go together
like mittens & scarves

and coats, and boots, and shovels, and parkas, and
snowblowers, and LONG winters & short days.

and that's why I am going to support this . . .

  1. I think you've caught the 'weather gene' :)

  2. Born...and raised in Minnesota...Love it (but you already knew that)

  3. I like the deer, haha. Yep, bring on the snow, might as well.
