Why I love Minnesotans

On Sunday morning at 7:30 am, my thermometer read an ungodly zero degrees.  Despite this temperature, I saw a man jogging and a woman walking her dog. Minnesotans in winter =hardcore.

After two hours of walking dogs at the shelter I realized I needed new winter boots.  Hubs and I trekked to the local Fleet Farm where they sell warm clothing that is so ugly you don't care if you get it dirty.  I found a pair of women's Sorel boots in a funky black plaid. Unfortunately they didn't have my size so I ended up with boots that resemble elephant feet that will keep me warm down to -50 degrees.  This is okay since as a seasoned Minnesotan I know that ugly=warm, whereas attractive=freeze your ass off.
