Remember winters?

We used to have winters up here in Minnesota.  It would get below zero before Thanksgiving and the harbor would freeze over.  Dad would walk out on the ice and chop a hole to see how thick it was, and if it was think enough, which it generally was, we would be able to go ice skating out on the bay.

If I wanted to go out on the bay today I could take my sailboat because there is no ice to speak of.


It rained today instead of giving us a little snow on the ground, what little snow we had from the last dusting melted because on the 1st of December it was 36 degrees.

I think I may either have to go someplace warmer where I wont expect snow or flee further north where I could at least get some still.
