Hunting for hats and gloves last week (October?) I was reminded of a friend who might be coming up short in the winter clothes column this fall. This family was driving by an apartment complex and saw fire trucks, ambulances and many, many residents: adults, children, infants and grandparents standing outside in mid-MN-winter, watching everything they owned burn to the ground. Some were in stocking feet. Few had jackets or hats. And it was cold. This friend and her family wheeled back to the apartment complex and the parents threw their coats, hats and mittens to the residents. The children followed the parents’ lead and handed their jackets and boots out through the car window.
