Minnesota Fashion Statement

Hey... it was 10 below this morning and I don't like to be cold when I run the snow blower. Sue me.

Oh my! That's cold! You do look like something out of a horror movie though ;O)

Sandy said...

You better be careful...you're gonna end up being mistaken for a robber or something! Seriously, you may be reading about youself in one of those infamous St. Cloud crime logs.

Junk Drawer Kathy said...

You look rather fetching. Sort of Jason meets Sasquach.

Ed said...

If you send one bit of that crap my way there's gonna be hell to pay!

April said...

I feel like I need one of those because it's in the low 60's here!

Gette said...

Waiting patiently for next week (month, season...)

Bill said...

The mask reminds me of the T.V. news story telling us that hand guns are in short supply around the whole country. I hope they are selling for self defense and not future crime.

Jeff said...

beetle - Just call me Minnesota Mummy Man!

sandy - Hey, thanks for the reminder. I should do some more of those crime logs again.

kathy - It's a MN grunge thing. It's all the rage here.

ed - Hey, I don't like it any more than you do. Trust me, I'm big time over it.

april - Oh, excuse me while I tune up my violin. ;-)

gette - I've long run out of patience. Bleh.

Heather said...

I am so tired of the cold. That's March in Minnesota though, right?

Elizabeth said...

Looks totally reasonable to me!
:)

Maureen said...

Oh, Jeff... you slay me. That's SUMMER wear up here!!! ;)

Michelle said...

Yikes. And I was complaining about the 65 to 14 in Chicago.... I take it back. I take it allllll back.

Whit said...

That's actually a pretty good look for you.

Theresa B said...

Minnesota Mummy Man, Pillsbury Dough Boy, whatever...

I'll think of you while I'm applying a second layer of sunscreen this weekend.

Windyridge said...

Those mittens are HUGE!

Jeff said...

bill - Hmmm, I did notice the gas station woman looked a little nervous when I went to get some gas for the snow blower.

heather - It's March in Antarctica too.

elizabeth - Spoken from a true Alaskan! ;-)

maureen - Ahh... that explains why Canadians are so pasty.

michelle - I don't get it. How do we have -17 this morning and you have +16? We're not that far away from each other.

whit - Yeah, I can make just about anything work.

theresa b - Hey, I can put sunscreen on too. Of course it won't do anything but I can still put it on. So there pffffffttttt!

windyridge - Heh... you know what they say about a guy with huge mittens.

Mom Thumb said...

Your crummy snow is falling here, bleh. So did you go right from snow blowing to your job as an axe murderer?

annof thejunkdrawerblogfamily said...

What kills me about clearing the snow is the amount of time and energy that is involved in getting dressed and undressed for the occasion. Each time I do it, I ask myself...how many years til we can retire to one of those communities where OTHER PEOPLE maintain the property.

Just don't drive anywhere wearing that mask. You'll find yourself surrounded by a SWAT team.

rick said...

I noticed the lift ticket on your coat, did you go snowboarding again?

Jeff said...

mom thumb - No, I lost my job as an axe murderer. You know... the economy and all.

ann - Yeah, but do you think the SWAT team will help me shovel my driveway?

rick - No, I'm too old for that. That was from when I went to the tubing hill with Roseanna in Feb.

I'm sure by now this picture is up on some tropical bulletin board as the funniest photo of the day while people read it when they're getting more sunscreen to go back to the beach...

carlae said...

Wow, that's horrible. I have to go out on the Lanai and watch the warm hawaiian ocean. bundle up

cathouse teri said...

I'm cool with that.

VE said...

ps...you didn't go to the bank like that did you? I mean I know the economy is tough and all...

unfinishedrambler said...

I'm never going to complain about winter again after seeing this photo. No snow here on ground right now. Cold, but no snow...of course, that all could change tomorrow, and then I could be dressed like you. Thanks for depressing me on what was otherwise a pleasant Saturday afternoon. ;)
