it will be nice when we can sit in the fridged temps and watch open air foot ball here as well, just like WI.

Can't tell you how happy we are that we sold our house in Deephaven 12/2 and now living in Los Angeles. Temp tomorrow will be 75 degrees. I must have been insane to want to move back twenty years ago. Last winter did us in with snow in May. We rarely even turn on the heat. Only in the morning when we get up for 30 minutes or so. The Weather Gods were looking after us. Now I feel sorry for the new owners. It took 2 furnaces to heat the main house and you can imagine what the bills were like. Out here it's around 40 bucks or less. Mainly to heat the water heater. You have my sympathies.

A) Why do people who moved to a warm climate city/state feel obligated to comment? We don't care. B)There is no reason for anyone to suffer outside in this cold. Any homeless or people without means should be allowed inside...Anywhere. We are a country with the means to make this happen.

I too choose to live in this climate because of the four seasons.... OK, granted, a few days in "one of the seasons" I could live without, but that comes with the territory; you know, like the mud slides and fires near L.A. Ahhh paradise. Make sure you put on some sun screen today.... wouldn't want any of our friends in L.A. to get sunburned.

PS .... so for a few days most Minnesotans will choose to stay inside because of the extreme cold. How many days in California, do people stay inside, because of the extreme heat?

Must have been some house, if it needed two furnaces to heat the place. I'm glad to be here in the land of four seasons - and without the traffic, smog and weirdness that comes with living in LA.

I, personally, welcome comments from L.A. or elsewhere speaking to our plights in Minn. It makes for more entertainment. He said "he must have been insane to move back" -- that's funny :) For me, the worst part about winter is driving in inclement weather conditions in traffic, constantly on edge. Next to that, the worst part is it's too long. Having said that, very grateful to live here and even grown up in northern Minnesota.
