The weather hasn't been too bad this winter, as Minnesota winters go. But the forecasters are telling us that winter will move in for real on Sunday. Single digit temps and high wind chill factors. In other words, the usual kind of thing.
And for the first time since I've moved here, the forecast has everyone spooked. How spooked, you ask? So spooked that no one is buying tickets for the Vikings playoff game this Sunday.
This is unheard of. Think of it: all of Minnesota, coming to its senses at once. Everyone int h Twin Cities suddenly realizing how completely insane it is to venture out of doors when the wind chill is somewhere around 20 below.
I give the residents of my adopted state a lot of credit. This wisdom has been a long time coming, and I congratulate everyone in the North Star State for finally getting a clue.
