Winter in Minnesota is a time for adventure, wonder, and sharing. Yes, it is long, lasting from late October to April. Yes, it is cold, with wind chills taking bearable temps hovering around 0 degrees to a downright chilly -30 degrees. However, the sunshine after a heavy snowstorm can provide enough of a warm-up for a fun day of sledding, skiing, ice hockey, or just playing in the snow. Even snow shoveling can be an adventure.
