Oh, winter.  I think we can officially say that you have arrived.  The wind chill in Minnesota the other day was -22 and when that happens, the studio I sit in for my radio show on Y-105FM has a hard time staying warm.  The thermostat was set to 69 degrees but since it felt like 60, I sat there talking in the microphone with my coat, hat, and gloves on and was frozen.

Winter was not my friend that day and I know we just will never get along.  I'm trying not to hate it but when I can't warm up, it is hard to keep that hate from showing up.

I’ve heard all of the “change your perspective” talks and “it will be better” and “be thankful for the snow, we need the moisture” conversations. I’m trying. I always try to be real though with you and if I’m being honest, I’d rather have a beach and the ocean next to me.
