Another day in the icebox


feb-20-2008.jpgThis really is the cruelest time of the year.  The sun is getting higher but the temperatures continue to drop.  Darn you laws of thermal dynamics! Here is the crew from Wednesday at our coffee stop.  Notice the melting snow on the step (it is zero degrees) .  The is the warm southern exposure at the coffee shop with no wind and bright sun.  It almost looks tropical (well not really, but we have to think that way here in the winter).

The Minnesota hunch 

Garrison Keillor talks about the Minnesota hunch on his radio show.  He is referring to a trait that we have of pulling our shoulders as close as possible to our ears and tucking chins to our chest as we walk in the winter.   Everyone out and about today was showing their best version of the hunch.
