    4 weeks ago it was -25 F not counting the windchill and right now its damn near 50 degrees and pouring rain. Only in MN in Feb can you see a 75 degree swing and still not be nice enough to go out without a coat.

    Amazing!!!!

    Yeah I have no idea how people can stand to live in that kind of weather :hs: I'd be ready to blow my brains out if I had to deal with that everyday.

    Doesn't really matter where else it can happen, it's still not good for you. Humans are instinctively used to no seasons and no variation in daylight -- or as little of both as possible. Keep in mind, our species evolved during an Ice Age, when it was impossible to live that far north or south.

    My sister lives in Minneapolis and is extremely depressed.

    Nothing in the world would make me move up north.

    The only thing that makes it tolerable and this is going to sound soooooo cheesy but the whole state smiles when the good weather days are here. We value the good weather so much more than others because we do not get it as often.


    I will say this last year was amazing. Spring started in April and April through October it barely rained, only got about 90 about 10 times and almost no humidity. It was frankly the best summer weather wise I have known in my 33 years here. Ugh Im old....

    Where in Mlps is she? What brought her here?

    Yeah, when it's nice out she's soooo happy, she just gets so depressed around this time and it upsets me. She lives in Chanhassen right now but I think they are moving to Eden Prairie soon :) Her husband is from Minneapolis originally so she followed him up there after getting married down here. His family owns the hardware stores called Hardware Hank (I think they are called?).

    Vitamin D my MN brother...

    The cold just makes you want to stay inside and not go anywhere, not to mention the sunlight hours are shorter during the winter. But it's only 3-4 months out of the year... the rest of it is spring, summer, and fall, so it's not all that bad.

    I'm pretty sure your body can't produce or use 8 grams of Vit. D every day.

    Maybe you have shitty lighting in your house. Check out Ott Lights; they are fluorescent lights that professional photographers use to simulate sunlight.

    and yes, winter is depressing. I wish I could give some good suggestions as to how to get over the winter blues, but I have them too and don't know what to do about it. All I can do is really sympathize with you

    I like Mn winter, I agree its a little too long, but.... keeps people close together, huddle up for warmth, especially if you're ice fishing with that special someone.
