Ahh, the first fake spring of winter

High in Minneapolis today: 40

This marks the second week in a row we will have had two days in the 40s. And as much as I like those days, in some ways I wish they just wouldn't come in the first place, because I know that there's still plenty of February left, and that it'll probably go back to -20 next week. All this one day of nice weather does is give us false hope that maybe the rest of winter won't be so bad.

But I figure the cold weather makes us a better a heartier people out here, so maybe this is just another wrinkle of nature trying to test us even further with the mocking taunt that for a lot of people, this weather is as bad as winter gets, not the most beautiful day in months...
