St. Paul MN

It was cold . . . .

Yesterday’s grand day Saint Paul Winter Carnival Parade was cold, but people came and watched, and I knew they would.  Some of the people in the parade were thanking spectators for coming out.  I did not see anyone I recognized, but that could be because everyone pretty much looks the same once they cover their faces with scarves.  At parade time it was 4 or 5 degrees above zero with a 20mph wind which made it feel like it was -15 or -20 depending upon where you get your weather reports.

The parade was actually enjoyable, but I was dressed for it with my several layers of clothes under a goose down jacket, and some heavy duty Sorrel boots.  I was outside for the entire parade an ended up walking a mile or so and never felt cold.

Here are some pictures of the parade and some of the spectators.

    Great pictures. I love it when people get out when it is cold. All you need are enough layers. A group of us were out playing broom ball yesterday. The only problem was the wind kept blowing the goals down the ice!

    I went to Rice Park yesterday and was OK until the wind that blew your goals around whipped up. I’ll admit I walked quickly to my car and did not go outside for the rest of the day. :)
