My mother used to say the Minnesota winters are either full of snow or way too cold. And this winter has been way too cold. Today was the second or third day that that the temperature never made it above zero. To top it off it was so windy that my house was singing.
At first I thought cats were fighting in the alley. But then I realized that the wind was hitting something (never figured out what) and causing a whistling or crying sound. It is one of those days that the sound of the crying wind made me shiver. I had the thermostat set at 73 degrees and I was chilled (in the mind over matter category the mind was winning.
Outside the whipping wind has blown away any loose snow and packed the dirty, grundgy snow to a gray shine. "One more day" they say. I hope they are right.
