Here in the northland, it never got to 32º F. and yet the lakes are still not frozen over. I read in the paper that some guy somewhere around Sandstone has already gone through the ice while attempting to do a little ice fishing. Swan Lake was entirely liquid. The clouds had a strange purplish hue, probably reflected sunlight from somewhere in the stratosphere. At least we had no scary wind storms.
NCW had her first day of physical therapy today in Nashwauk. It'll take 15-20 sessions before she's back to full strength, but the process has to start somewhere.
