F*@K Mother Nature

Happy Spring (?)! It sure doesn't feel like the first day of spring when our temps are single digits in the morning with double digit BELOW zero windchills.  Ugggg.  I have been super crabby the past few days and I have NO doubt that it is, in part, due to this sucky weather.  It's funny, …

Just call me The Postman

I'm like the Postman - there isn't any weather that will keep me from getting the job done.* Facebook and twitter and the radio and newspapers were all FILLED with Minnesotans talking about how cold it was today.  The weather people were calling it "dangerously" cold and warning of frost bite occurring within minutes.  Well, …

Everywhere  you turn lately, Minnesotans are bitching about the heat.  YES, it sucks.  YES, it is insanely hot and HUMID (78 when I ran at 5:30 this morning; high later will be 97 with heat index making it feel like 115).  But it is what it is.  It doesn't need to prevent you from getting …
