It’s so Cold in Rockford Today that You Can Freeze Your Jeans
In case you missed it, this morning Steve and I were chatting about how cold it was going to be today- the high is only 13; which just happens to be Illinois' winter misery index rating. I casually mentioned that it could be a lot worse, you could be ranked first, which just happens to be my home state of Minnesota- where it gets so cold that the people of Minneapolis thought it would be funny to freeze their jeans.
It's sort of become an annual tradition and now, every winter, Minnesotans will freeze their jeans and leave them in yards and around the city as artwork.
Steve just happened to have a spare pair of jeans in his gym bag, so we thought we would give it a try.
It took less than 45 minutes for his jeans to freeze and here's what they looked like after.
Feel free to have some fun of your own with frozen jeans; it looks like it's a lot more fun with fresh snow.
Stay warm and don't forget to check on your neighbors and take good care of your pets.
