Maybe Soccer Shouldn't Be An Outdoor Sport In North Dakota

We're trying to play a makeup game today for Macy's soccer team after cancelling makeup games yesterday due to wind chills in the low 20's. Two weeks ago it was in the 70's and I was more preoccupied with remembering bug repellent for the mosquitos. Today I'm telling my girls to put long underwear on under their uniforms. On the upside, there won't be any bugs out today. A night in the teens tends to slaughter the mosquito population. Nothing like a cold night to get your bug genocide on.

The winds are supposed to be lighter today and the temperature should be close to 40 at game time. If we can dodge the snow flurries we should be able to get the game in. Donna is going to brave the elements and get some video. I'm going to attempt to take a team picture in case we can't make up our last game next week. Right now that looks about 50-50. There's no money in the budget for plowing snow off the fields.
