Icebox of the Nation?

This time last year it was -30° and today it was 36°!! I know for people who aren’t from MN,  36° is freezing, but for fellow Minnesotans, it felt like a heatwave! Today I went ice fishing with my fiancé and his family, and we didn’t have to set up our pop-up fish houses. We just sat on chairs and buckets outside on the ice.  The only downside was the massive amount of snow that had melted from it being above freezing and turned into five inches of water on top of the ice. By the end of the day, we left with a small pond around us, and cold feet from slushing in water. I couldn’t get over how warm the weather was for the end of January!! With my hometown’s annual Icebox Days coming to a close this weekend, which celebrates us being named one of the  coldest cities in America, it made me question could this really be The Icebox of the Nation?

This photo was in the beginning of the day before the water took over. We took home thirteen keepers
