I wish the Vikings played outside. This is the kind of weather every kid dreams of playing in.

So where is more efficient? Hurricane country? The ring of fire for earthquakes? Minnesota has deep, rich soil, lots of trees, tons of lakes and rivers, it's good country. And the buses are still running if you live in the metro! Besides, snow is good insulation and fun for the kids for some little 20-minute recesses.

Haha, yeah they should have a football game with no yard lines. The announcers can barely see "Favre passes it to... a wide receiver... once they dust the snow off I'll tell you who it was."

If you think living in Minnesota is "inefficient", then move elsewhere. At least the temperatures aren't too terrible at the moment.

Stay home unless you have to go out...if you can't get there unfoot, it maybe smarter to just veg at home and relax with a good book or whatever you enjoy. ..... Now some idiots will be out tailgating and calling the cops and tow truck from the ditch but it won't be me!
