It is weeks like this last one when the wind chill was low enough to close schools that make me dream of living on the downtown Minneapolis skyway system… the largest continuous skyway system in the world, spanning 8 miles and 69 blocks.

Imagine going to work or the gym, shopping, picking up groceries, going out to dinner or attending live theater with your feet never touching the ground!

Imagine walking out to your own balcony in the heart of city landmarks… and walking off your elevator onto the skyway system… priceless!
