I think you have to be born to be a Minnesotan, especially in winter. Who else would be crazy enough to like this stuff? For many Minnesotans this is fun!For a few Minnesotans this is fun.I know, I have family that has abandoned me here as they seek warmer climates, and then I have family that thinks this is fun.
Me, I’ve reached the age where I prefer to sit by the fire when it’s really cold, but a bit of snow fun is not out of line for me.
Today was a work day for me. Once I had my morning school bus route in, I had grain to haul to the ethanol plant. I had the no fun job of getting a very cold truck started. Since the truck is old and the heater in it not very good, plus there are a few holes in the floor, I was not warm while driving it. Still, the work must be done. I have a few more days of hauling before I’m done, so I would like some sunshine and warmer weather, no such luck.
Still, I don’t mind. You put on enough layers and retreat to a warm place when you can. Then when the wind howls, you don’t go. That part makes surviving a winter like this easier. I have wood in the wood pile, a nice house to retreat to and things to do when I am home. As long as I don’t have to travel when the snow blows, I do like winter.
