TWISP | This Week in Saint Paul: Monday, Jan. 5–Sunday, 11, 2015


I hope your new year is starting well. The year looks bright. For the moment, the weather has decided that it is winter, just in time for Saint Paul’s world-famous Winter Carnival. Unlike in the past, we don’t have an ice castle every year. I wonder if climate uncertainty makes for uncertainty over whether we can have ice castles. Even so, the art climate is fine and this week is ready for your basking pleasure!

I have this strategy where I wait until the new year has come  weeks after we have ventured into the next year  before I buy my pocket calendar. My next wall calender has been fixed behind the old one for some time, my Minnesota Farmers Union calendar that I pick up each summer at the Minnesota State Fair. The pocket calendar is a different story. I wait because they go on sale at some places.
