Surviving Winter



The key to surviving a Minnesota winter, it turns out, is not snuggling under a blanket and sitting by the fire.  The key to surviving a Minnesota winter is bundling up and playing outside.  This includes ice skating.  Every single person in the north owns a pair of ice skates.  It's required by state law.  And the winter ritual of taking one's skates to get sharpened at, say, Hisdahl's, a converted house with gingerbread trim, makes it quite apparent that, Dorothy, we're not in Georgia anymore.
