    minnesota-mapToday, Thursday November 17, 2016, is give to the max day. I have never donated money to the ACLU before but it is a charity I think is going to be more important than ever before.

    There are several organizations that are involved in housing and civil rights. We can all make a difference through our donations and by volunteering for a cause we believe in.

    Give to the Max Day is a unique, online 24-hour outpouring of generosity for the causes that make Minnesota communities stronger.

    Bikes and warming house

    I saw this while I was walking home from a meeting yesterday. The small orange building is the warming house that sits next to the skating rink and in the foreground we have the NiceRide bikes. Usually we don’t see the bikes and the warming house in the same picture. Normally we would be done with the bikes by now.

    So far we have not had a hard frost in St. Paul. We may set a record for the longest growing season. The latest freeze on record was November 7th. It looks like we are going to make it well into next week before the temperature dips below freezing. According to the updraft weather blog the last time we go below freezing was April 12, 2016.

    The weather seems to be good for home sales.
