It's cold...

It's been way too damn cold in Minnesota. We've had over a month (until today) with temps below 0... not below freezing, below 0* F. Through January we averaged a temperature of 2* F. I am getting incredibly antsy for it to warm up and I've definitely got the race track blues, because this weather blows!

I WANT TO GO RACE.

Anyone else jones-in for hitting the racetrack once it warms up? (damn all you FL, CA and TX people)

Re: It's cold...

By the time our track season starts I will have bitten off all of my finger nails in pure anxiety during this winter. Seriously, you warm climate people have no idea the pain and mental endurance us Northern's have to learn to embrace. Drinking helps though...

I don't know about mild. That seems more like one of the colder days this year.
