    Nanook of the North

    Let me start by stating that I did not take this picture, this is a self portrait of my daughter taken on her Iphone.
    This is the pic I got the morning she had to walk to class at 7:30am in single digit weather. I don't know why she would schedule a 8am class...college kids are supposed to sleep in.

    She does not like the cold!!!
    It just made me smile

    She looks very pleased to have be up early and get out into the bracing weather! Just out of curiosity, how cold was it? Looks to me like she is dressed to go out in minus 30C (-22F).

    Hi Jon,
    A father always has to be concerned about his daughter. "Colledge kids have to sleep in".
    Where is she studying, in Alaska?

    One point this image is proof of - get an IPhone - or get yourself a camera, if you want to take pictures.

    You're sending her to college so she can become really smart. Clearly, the plan hasn't yet worked.

    It was up to 5*f in northern Ohio that morning but she is bundled up like she is taking a dog team across Antarctica.

    Gotta love that girl!!!

    Jon, she took this selfie and post it to you to let you know how she feels going out at 8AM in the single digits cold...Consider yourself lucky she gets up early to go to college. Ours finished college and sleeps till 2PM, then party the night away...Mind you he graduated Summa Cum Laude 3 years ago...
