A strange January in Minneapolis

Yesterday, on the way to work, I got off the bus at University avenue, wast of the River, and walked the last 1 1/2 miles or so to work. I was anticipating (correctly, as it turned out) a rough day at the office and wanted to get some exercise while I could. I was wearing my fall jacket and was perfectly comfortable. There was no snow on the ground. My initial idea was to get into the Skyway system as soon as I could reach it west of the Mississippi, but by the time I got there I decided not to bother and walked outdoors all the way to Government Center.
