form follows function

Observe the official Minnesota winter grill: a fresh wreath entwined with an electrical cord to plug in an engine heater. Festive yet functional. Today's temp w/wind chill has been around -14 degrees. As I post it is -1. The old timers say this is much like the way winters used to be up north. . .

These are two pics I took before the town of White Bear Lake morphed into Siberia. Tis the season for red, including noses! Lots more @ Mary's meme, Ruby Tuesday.

I think that we who don’t live in the great white north complain about the weather a bit much - that was a lot of snow in the Twin Cities yesterday! The Metrodome seemed like a good idea until the mighty snows took advantage of the tears in the seams...A hearty stock of peoples can endure and thrive such cold and snow! The wreath on the grille is a lovely moving holiday decoration...

Love the photos! Hang in there -- believe it or not, I loved being in the Twin Cities in the winter. 30 below zero morning in January and all!
