I don't do cold. Just can't. Not in the house during the day.

The problem with "special diets" is that they work for the short term but it's nearly impossible to stick with them long term unless it fits your habits and what you like. However, if you can take away something from it that helps you, that's good too.

My daughter got her permit a couple weeks ago.

Winter in Minnesota is a great time to learn driving, as the conditions don't really get much worse. Glaring sun reflecting off all the white blinds you, side streets now have either snow, ice, water, sand, or some or all of the above, and have 4' tall snow berms left from plowing.

Most frequent reminders are:
1) right foot does brakes and accelerator, left foot is reserved for a clutch.
2) check mirrors, but turn your head and look when backing or changing lanes.
3) your half of the road doesn't come out of the middle.

Good luck!

Just be thankful for global warming. If not for that you'd be freezing!
