Frozen Minnesota

The legendary Minnesota Winters are back! Artistic trees stand still and bare, accepting the falling flakes. It is snooze time for little creatures, who are resting underground after a busy Fall. The wise Sun reigns supreme and his touch of warmth heals and thaws. Any small movement in the stillness gets noticed. And s.i.l.e.n.t.l.y, the disturbance becomes a part of the stillness. Not only those slippery roads but the frozen world makes you go s.l.o.w.l.y…. taking in, reveling!

Coats, hats, gloves and boots line up in the mudroom, while snow blowers get dusted off. Polite conversations end up in predictions about the weather. Festivity is in the air and things are building up for the Holy night. Everything is so white and crystal clear, covering all the darkness and dirt. Even the nights are white in Minnesota! Acceptance of the beauty of it all is what makes one enjoy and be grateful for the Frozen Minnesota.
