This weekend is going to be super cold. Saturday afternoon, wind chills are expected to dip down to minus 35 or minus 45 degrees. Yikes.

So we went around Minneapolis and asked some people how they plan to spend the frigid weekend. Most said they plan to stay inside where it's warm and remember all the good things about Minnesota (like how nice it is in the summer).
