It's been depressingly cold in Minnesota for several weeks. The back streets in my neighborhood have been plowed once and are now covered with a polished icy veneer similiar to what is on my driveway and sidewalks. The little dogs can't do their business in the snow (too deep)...so we have to clean the sidewalks of their poop. Yes, winters in Minnesota can be trying...but not like this: When I read this tibit by BlueCollar Daughter, I wanted to cry…I keep hearing from the media that we are starting an economic recovery but when I look around at my friends and family, nothing could be further from the truth. Most of us are just hoping to make it til spring. Maybe it's just the cold speaking, but the information just get's worse...The National Association of Realtors says pending home sales fell 16 percent in November, the first decline following nine straight months of gains.
I have a friend that lives a block from the Apollo...maybe this spring I'll go visit. I could use a break from the depressing cold and even more depressing economics.
