Sunday Summary – March 17, 2019

St. Patrick’s Day, that day of green things which should not be green and (this year anyway) things which ought to be green are still buried under snow and ice. We could repurpose St. Patrick’s Day as a happy and green climate action day (and a few green beers would probably be ok in this […]

Sunday Summary – February 17, 2019

Getting around A Car-Free, Car-Less, and Car-Lite Guide To Surviving Bemidji from Henry Pan describes how he gets around Bemidji without driving (or driving much).  “As difficult as it is living in Bemidji without a car in the winter, it is indeed possible to live without one.

Winter haters in Minnesota have had much to complain about in the last week with lots of snow, cold temperatures, and lots of events and activities cancelled. Perhaps our writers are hunkered down awaiting warmer weather (or failed to read Amy Gage’s post or still enjoying a post-City of Lakes Loppet high), but it was a […]

Given the whipsawing of temperatures, we may have spring-like interludes, but I’m quite confident we’re not going to be seeing green leaves in mid-March. February is a great time […]

Sunday Summary – January 20, 2019

Last week was busy here on streets.mn with current events, project reviews, and a variety of journeys.  Plus, of course, some regular features. Get up to speed… Winter! I love winter – especially snowy winter – and think being active outside is the way to be warm and enjoy the season. Others agree – Jenny […]
