I was born here and may never leave here, but its not because I love the weather. This weekend its supose to rain all weekend and maybe snow. In fact place north of the twin cities are getting snow. I hear I-94 near Alexandria is shut down because of the snow. We have had like 3 nice days this year.
The weather actually does not depress me. I am cool staying in. But it is amazing too me how bad our weather is compared to many people on ActiveRain. Add the fact that I am not the outdoor type who does things in the winter in the snow, and I am the rare none hunter type in Minnesota. Leads to the questions of why do I stay?
Easy, I have kids and family and friends. I guess I will have to stay in out of the rain and beat my 4 and 6 year old in a friendly game of My Little Pony Match. Actually I have only beat them once. I stink at match and they are good. Yes, my kids flat out beat me at match. I don't even let them win. I hope the weather is better where ever you are at! I am in Cambridge, MN.
