Growing up in Cincinnati, Ohio, I was pretty familiar with mild weather. Snows in the winter, rains in the spring, and is humid in the summer.
Needless to say, I was not prepared for the cold intense winters that I’d experience living in the north. Silly me even interviewed for my first job out of college (Target headquarters) on a beautiful spring day. I knew it would be cold and snowy in Minnesota but I thought it couldn’t be that bad. Right?
Well I would soon learn how to properly bundle up in layers, run outside while avoiding icy sidewalks, dream of sunshine, and drink coffee to keep warm.
