A Cool Place

If you have been wondering where I have been, look no further than the great white scene of North Dakota.

Brrrr.

When I touched down in Grand Forks, the pilot came on the speaker to announce that it was 15 below zero. That wasn't even the coldest it was all weekend. At one point, the news reported 25 below.

It just made sense to have this insane cold weather when I am visiting Grand Forks because it seemed that everything that I experienced in Grand Forks was classic Grand Forks. For example, I spent more time watching hockey in less than a 24 hour period than I have watched in five years. Not just any hockey game the rivalry of the University of North Dakota and the University of Minnesota. Just so you know...they split the series.

It was a good visit. It always feels good to be home in the midwest.

Even compared to Central Minnesota where I live, Grand Forks was cold! I was happy to be back home where it was a good 10 degrees warmer. 10 below feels like heaven after 25 below.

Thanks for the visit cousin!

Kevin and I watched the games (we have an extended cable package just for me to watch ND hockey games...gotta have a LITTLE bit of ND down here with me!) and after the 1st period of the Friday night game he said, "Is ND even really PLAYING hockey right now?" It's bad news when a person with limited hockey knowledge can see when a team isn't exactly doing their best. I was happy they won the first game, and disappointed by the second, but figure they were lucky to win even one.

And--thanks for reminding me why I don't go to ND in the winter anymore. ;-) It's 40 degrees around here and I'm freezing to death--I don't think I can handle below zero anymore. I'm too old for that crap! hahahahaha
