Yesterday, the thermometer scraped 50 degrees here in the Twin Cities. The mercury had been bottoming out below zero for weeks at a time during February so this was a welcome change of pace! So welcome in fact that as I was running some errands, I happened to glance at our neighborhood frozen custard parlor :) There was a line out the door, and there were (get this!) 2 or 3 families sitting outside on the picnic tables eating their frozen custard next to heaping mounds of snow wearing their winter coats. Aaaah, yes. Only in Minnesota.
