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.

  1. 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.


  2. I think this says it all (from Star Tribune home page):

    Windchill warning remains posted for the entire area through Friday morning…will feel more like -25 to -40. Frostbite possible on unprotected skin in under 3 minutes.
