You can fight it, but winter always wins. You might as well embrace it.
Take these lads at Chicago’s Soldier Field on Monday night:
The temperature was near zero in Chicago as Vikings fans wondered whether the Packers could help them to the playoffs by beating the Bears. I, on the other hand, found myself wondering why we don’t hear more about emergency room cases of people with frostbitten chests.
I, on the other hand, spent the evening making ice lanterns. Several Current listeners sent me tips on how to make them. In the end, I chickened out and just bought a mold.
Let’s see south Florida top that!
The floor is open for your tips on how to enjoy winter.
