IMG_2142IMG_2144I was going to do a why-are-we-teaching-our-children-to-be-wimps blog post because schools are closed today. It was around –25F this morning. (Bill Ostrem blogged that it was –28 at his house.) But then I’ve abandoned my corner office at GBM because it’s too cold by the window so I’m a wimp, too.

I saw Penny Hillemann’s blog post with photos on Tuesday, Cannon River at 20 Below Zero.  Later that night I took these two photos from the footbridge. The river’s frozen over completely on the north side and almost frozen over on the south side up to the dam.

    Twenty Five Below at 6 AM this morning. ATM could not even serve cold cash. The ATM was completely frozen up.

    Image code attached. Do not know if this will work, but I am going to try to insert the HTML.

    Cool! I got an IM from my colleague in the UK this morning who heard a piece on a radio station in London about the temperature in Mpls. Not the best for tourism, I suppose.

    I received three separate voicemails from staff at the CAC asking me to help spread the word that Thursday’s Table is canceled tonight due to the cold.
