I had to wait at a couple of bus stops on my way home. It turns out it really is quite cold -- cold enough so I zipped my parka all the way up and tightened the hood around my face, till only my nose and my eyes behind glasses were exposed. That wasn't enough at the second bus stop, I had to pull a wool scarf over my nose, which meant my glasses fogged up. But I saw the bus.

This is the way Minnesota winters should be. The cities look right, the sky bright, banks of snow along the streets, people bundled up and exhaling clouds of vapor.
