The coldest kickoff since the Gophers moved back outside to TCF Bank Stadium was 23-degrees, against Iowa in November of 2010. We’ll be lucky if the high gets that high on Saturday, so fans, and players, are already figuring out how to stay warm for the big game.
It’s the eve of 12-straight days of State Fair fun. For Minnesota State Fair vendors, it’s 12 days of 12-hour plus work. For places like The Lunchbox, it’s actually 19 straight days. They open a week early for the early birds that come in to set up.
Last weekend’s snow may be the reminder we all need to make sure our vehicles are up to the winter weather ahead.
