The Minnesota Fascination With Staying Cold.


It's an annual event here in the land of 10,000 lakes.  We complain non-stop about the cold weather all winter long. Those subzero temps that defy logic and mounds of snow beside frozen lakes. Anyone care to lick a piece of metal?  Oh how we miss the warmth of summer and wouldn't it be nice to wear shorts and flip flops again.  The longer I live here, the more I'm convinced is that the answer is that we really don't want to thaw out. Ever.
