Gadzooks! What is that thing in the sky?!

It's the sun, me old China, and every single one of us here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes went running out to dance and play in it today.

Today's high temperature was 58º Fahrenheit (14º C) and most of us didn't know what to do with ourselves, the path that runs along the Mississippi River near where I live was packed with people as if they were on parade. People drove with their windows down and shouted and whistled and cheered at one another because they couldn't contain their joy.

Tonight the temperature is expected to drop to 29º (-2º C) and we're expecting snow. How can you not love Minnesota? The weather keeps you on your toes.

I apologize about not posting since Thursday (not sure why I need to apologize, I'm pretty sure you'll carry on). I've been intensely busy.

PS -- I am hurting for ideas on my column (that is due tomorrow) if you've got any talking points that you can think of, please let me know.

column ideas: why in the world it takes me 20 minutes to put in contact lenses but, after drinking a spot or two of wine, i can poke myself in the eye accidentally with no problem?
that's not a good column idea, is it?
