Day 18 of Loving MN Winter 2017

By : Heidi Schallberg · February 18, 2017

I #LoveMNWinter! Today, I love sundogs.

One of my favorite things about moving to a new region is learning things new to me that either didn't exist or weren't part of the culture where I lived before. Moving to Minnesota has meant learning about, among other things, neck gaiters, meat raffles, ice houses on frozen lakes, booya, and sundogs. For some reason it took me until my fourth Minnesotan winter to actually see sundogs.

One morning in January last year, it was -6F outside with a wind chill of -26F when I went to check the condition of my adopted site for the City of Minneapolis biking and walking winter maintenance conditions survey.

"Sundogs!" I shouted in excitement as I looked south of the Ford bridge. I finally saw sundogs!
