The closing on the sale of our house was this morning and we are out of the house!  That's a big accomplishment that we are pleased to be done with.
Last night Dan Marose helped us move the last big loads to storage in Vivian's basement in Watertown.  We were working hard outside loading the vans, both wearing just a sweatshirt (no hats, coats, gloves, etc).  When I got in the van to leave with a load at 8:30 pm, I noticed that the van said the outside temperature was -2 F (-19 C).  That's 98 degrees colder than it was in Perth at the same time!  Hmmm... I'm not minding that we're still here in the midst of a great Minnesota winter rather than in the heat of the Perth summer.
