For those of you who live

in warmer climates,

this entry will seem silly.

But if you live

in the frozen tundra,

also known as the upper Midwest,

you’ll understand the beauty

of seeing 32-degrees on the dashboard.

We just ended a bitter cold snap here

and I heard so many people today

celebrating the fact that it’s

above freezing again!

I love that people here

appreciate every little degree

we can get during winter.

We’ll have plenty more cold snaps

and wind chills and frostbite

between now and spring,

but for now we’re living in the moment

and giving a shout-out to Mother Nature.

You go, girl!
