hot town, summer in the city

As a native Minnesotan, I feel like I have some sort of right to comment on weather regularly.
If you know me personally (or better yet, know my dad or grandma), you know this obsession with weather is actually a familial trait, something passed down to new generations in the Green genetic code.

That being said: good goddamn, it’s hot outside. The TCF tower flashed 75 degrees as I wandered into work at 7:30 this morning.

When it gets this sticky, all I want to do is sit in a lake. Thankfully, our fine city boasts a few of those. If you are thinking of playing hooky or otherwise heading out to the beach to cool off, I found some good information at the Minneapolis park and rec site (hours, rules, even water quality), and for my friends to the east, some places to swim in St. Paul, as well.

    I don’t know why I didn’t notice this before, but I was pleased to discover that there’s a public pool at Mueller Park (6 blocks from me). Not that I would actually swim in it. Gross.

    Also, my favorite place to dip my toes in the water is Cedar Lake.
