“Cold Enough For ‘Ya?,” or
West North, Young Man”
I’m sure that other people have their own preferred definitions of what constitutes a “true Minnesotan” (growing up knowing how to sheetrock? Ice skating before you could walk?), but here’s mine:
“A true Minnesotan is someone who heads north, not south whenever they have vacation time.”
Regardless of whether it’s July or January.
I have numerous acquaintances who, when I ask if they have travel plans over the holidays, President’s Day weekend (coming up), etc. routinely announce that they’re heading north to their cabins — or their friends’.
So, I suppose when you ask these folks if it’s cold enough for them, they reply, “Nope!”
