    It is a frozen hell here in Minnesota as well, temps in the 20's for a high and really windy.

    "Temps in the 20s" sounds too nice. More like "the feels like temp is -4." I'm sick of it.

    Bright sunshine this morning. Awesome looking out the window.

    Made the mistake of stepping outside into the 28* weather with a 17 MPH West wind.

    I think I'm going to put my Spyder Web target through it's paces in the basement this morning!

    The seasons have changed by about a month. Been saying it for a few years. I don't ever remember bow hunting in NY in a T shirt. Don't remember it consistently snowing and in the 20's two weeks into April. Stays warmer longer in the fall and colder longer in the spring.

    I agree. Same thing in Arkansas but not as extreme with the temps. Barely feels like fall in November and winter doesn’t start until January.

    I walked outside on Saturday and though it seemed pretty nice out, it was 22, what kind of spring has it been?

    We no longer have a spring in the upper midwest. We simply have Spwinter.

    I've been thinking that for awhile. When i was a kid usually snow was done by late Feb. Now it seems to be just getting started in early Feb. I used to freeze my tookas off in my late October early- mid November stands, now I rarely need more than a layered hoodie.
