After very strange fall and winter weather, Minnesota is back to typical late January weather. How cold is it? Last night, the Foletta-cat led me to the fireplace and requested _restart this, please_.
It's clear and in the single digits, just in time for the Saint Paul Winter Carnival. In years past there might be a foot or more of ice on the lakes by now, but the temperature was up to 40 degrees F not longer ago than Thursday. There's ice, but it might not be thick enough to be same to walk on.
