As some of you already know I live in Minot, North Dakota, which is just another way to say I live along the wall of Winter. The phrase ” Winter is Coming”, is not just a phrase from the Game of Thrones series, it’s a way of life over here. I’ve notice since I’ve lived, which will be four years in May 2017, that no one truly says “Goodbye” in Minot, especially the colder months. I not know when I started doing it, nor am I sure when I started doing it, but the customary way of saying “Goodbye” in Minot seems to replaced by the phrase “Stay Warm”. It’s really no surprise that this phrase is as close to an endearment as saying ” I love you” to a complete stranger. You’re probably thinking that this entire post about the phrase “Stay Warm” being the new replacement for a proper “Goodbye” is just me trying to make extra post from being suddenly absent. You’re right. But after seeing the photos of my apartment complex level of snow, I hope you realize that snow in Minot is just as freighting as a hurricane in Florida.
P.s. After getting hit with 4 blizzards back to back, I can honestly say that this is probably the worst winter I ever seen living in Minot!
