Just call us...

North Dakota: minus 24.9°. At 6:30 am.

The good news: absolutely no wind.

Tea on the porch morning routine in this “brisk” weather: take mug of hot tea, step onto porch, sip the hot tea, wave at the mountains and say “hi world!”, step back into house as quickly as possible. Tea on the porch in the morning is for enjoyment, not suffering. Yes, I do close the door behind me for the 10 seconds I’m out there. Glad our doors only lock on deadbolts too; there’s not much room for error at these low temperatures, but I’m way too lazy to put on coat, ear warmers, hood, gloves, and boots for 10 seconds on the porch. Oh, maybe a hat or ear warmers.
