Word ’em up

Desert Cat casts righteous aspersions: What is with all the pathetic whining in the Northeast? It’s fifteen degrees below zero in Portland, Maine and the governor has declared a “state of emergency”?! WTF?!


The last winter I spent in Minnesota, it was thirty degrees below zero every single frickin’ morning for almost two weeks straight. Geez people!

I remember that winter. I also remember going out running in sweats cut off at the knee when it was 15 below. Not because I was trying to prove anything, just because that’s what you do in Minnesota. The only thing that was tough was the way that the condensation from your breath would freeze on your eyelashes, and every now and then you’d have to rub it off with the back of your gloves.
