    Every one of these seemed stupid to me until the last one. Living in MN, winter is from late Oct until early May no matter what. So whether or not Crunch (the MN Timberwolves' mascot didn't see his shadow then gave a deal for $6 tickets) sees his shadow doesn't mean anything - it is going to be 'cold' with a chance for snow for at least 3 more months.

FYI, International Falls, MN, got down to -46* (air temp, not windchills) last night and it was still -30* at 8-9 am this morning. Thankfully I live in the Minneapolis/St Paul metro which was 0* at 8-9 am.
