January's annual punishment

Email

It was 7:30 a.m. on Friday, January 21, 2011, and it was not a promising day. The night before it had been 46 degrees below in International Falls -- a record for the date even in that ice box, 40 degrees below zero in nearby Park Rapids, and at 7:30 it was 22 below where I stood -- in my driveway. I was there to shovel off the overnight snow. There was a vicious raw wind howling from the north and the wind chill was near 60 below.
