North Face

Last night we watched an incredibly intense, fascinating movie about mountain climbing Germans and Austrians in Switzerland in the 1930s called The North Face.

Which got me thinking about the company, North Face; very popular here in Minnesota since they have quality winter gear (and camping too, if you're into that).

And then we woke up to the first snow of the season.

I went downtown on the light rail to breakfast with a friend who's in town from Denver.

Found it kind of funny that they have snowflakes on the light posts downtown. Hardly necessary.
Also made me chuckle when my friend mentioned The Mary Tyler More show.

Don't think she would have been taking off her hat this morning.

Brrrr. Hope the heavy wet snow didn't damage any of your trees.

We saw "The North Face" too -- one of the many depressive and/or intense movies I saw while pregnant (incl. "The Hurt Locker," 2 of the 3 Stieg Larsson films, "Precious," etc) ... did you enjoy the film, despite the downer ending?
