We Minnesotans often hear we have an accent. I don't hear it..and the movie Fargo sounds like a North Dakotan to me...but I digress. We do have our own names for our unique weather patterns and the results though: Snizzle (a combination of snow and drizzle), maccident (a huge pile up caused by the previous) and Hard Water..when the lakes freeze over and the winter migration ensues.
Minnestoa is a state of dream walkers, in the summer the ice fisherman are dreaming of Hard Water..otherwise known as ice. The other sane portion of the population is dreaming of water..fluid, boatable and warm when you fall into it. As the boats leave, the winter dreamers salivate.
The tents go up as soon as there is ice, and the luxury homes follow as soon as a truck can pull them out. The Tiny Home movement has been around Minnesota for decades..no building codes on ice!
