    It's "Hockey Day Minnesota" today. Basically a bunch of high school teams, and a few select college teams, play in games all day at a select city outdoors. This year is in Bemidji, MN, on a lake.

    This morning, when the puck dropped for two HS teams, Minnetonka and Andover, it was -30F (-34C). Yikes!

    However, it's fun to watch from your 70F living room.

    You Canadians definitely have it worse than us on a consistent basis. We're nearing a record low tonight of -29F (-30F is the record in 1887) in Minneapolis, with wind chills at about -55F. Of course on Saturday, it's supposed to be 37F, which is a 66 degree turnaround in three days. Crazy weather.

    I'd be lying if I said I wasn't jealous about where you live.

    Quoted from Electrocute:

    Drove thru Minneapolis/ St. Paul in the summertime many years ago. Felt jealous, very nice time of the year up there.

    We deal with these harsh winters for the amazing summers. Or at least that is what I keep telling myself.

    If so, these children are in trouble...

    Quoted from benheck:

    Met some people for dinner and the bar had a sign "Closed tomorrow due to cold" haven't seen that before!
    Supposed to hit -25 here in Wisconsin tomorrow morning. Lame!

    I've never heard of that either.

    They are cancelling mail service tomorrow in Minnesota, Iowa, western Wisconsin and western Illinois. That makes a little more sense.

    Quoted from kirkgun:

    As I mentioned earlier, I spent this past week in Iowa. We buried my mom-in-law on the coldest day in over a decade (Wednesday).

    I'm sorry to hear about your family's loss.
