    There have been enough "When should I not ship?" threads the last couple weeks...

    It's going to be brutally cold in MN this weekend & early next week. If you're have a trade in the works & your box is coming anywhere near the upper Midwest...don't.

    Thus ends our Public Service Announcement for the day.

    Is it that awesome MN cold where you can throw a cup of boiling water in the air and make it snow?

    Man I love that type of cold.

    Not yet. Give it a few days though. Forecast high of -8 (yes, HIGH of -8) coming on Monday. That'll keep the goodies tucked in tight.

    Even cooler than that is when bubbles freeze before they hit the ground. Then they roll around like mini tumbleweeds. MN BAs, try it out this weekend. Works best around -20 or lower, but just fine at 0.

  6. Great, a bunch of MN BA's out on their porch blowing bubbles on a cold January night.

    Indiana is slated to be in the teens next week and possibly single digits. It was in the twenties yesterday but probably mid 40s today. Can we get some consistency?!? It was in the fifties last week.
