INTO THE TUNDRA
Only in Minnesota is it common to warm the car up for 20 minutes in order to make a 5 minute commute! I decided to bring the car to work this afternoon in order to hit the grocery store right after I leave the bank. When it gets this cold, even if the temperature gage starts climbing into the normal range, it never seems to make a difference on the inside of the car. When I went out this morning, all I could hear was the screaming belts of cars that were not sufficiently warm. I wonder... do any other states cancel school because of the cold, or is it just Minnesota? And if so, do they wait until it is 50 degrees below zero or much less? We are a tough bunch!
