Stoic Minnesotans, Mid-Fall 2018 Edition

What do Minnesotans say when overnight low’s — in mid-November! — drop into the single digits? (never mind that the windchill Friday night was below zero).

No, not “OMG, it’s #@%$# cold!!”

Try, “It’s getting kinda  . . . chilly out there” (yup, “chilly”).

That’s it.

If that seems crazy to you . . . you’re not from around here.

P.S.: Sadly, I’m sure that that weather forecast sounds pretty good to lots of people in California right now.
