Earlier this week we took our first dip into the single digits. Cold weather is here. It's Fall and Winter in the land of 10,000 lakes; and we're going to be dealing with it for a while. So, instead of the usual complaining about our fate as Minnesotans, let's embrace it by each adding one thing that's good about cold weather.

Either comment here at the bottom of this story, or weigh in on The Loon Facebook page. Share it with all your friends, and let's see how many reasons we come up with as to why we should embrace our cold Minnesota weather.

Here are a few ideas to get things started:

  • Your beer doesn't get warm.
  • Snowmobiling.
  • Your friends & family from California don't visit; and leave you alone.
  • Cuddling & other body-heat generating activities.
  • Hot tubbing is better at 20˚ than it is at 85˚.
  • Hot toddies.

Ok, your turn. Comment, share, repeat.
