Welcome to Fall in Minnesota, hope you didn't miss it. The weather did a big change during October, Did you got out to see the fall colors and had time to winterize.
ON THE ROAD AGAIN: it was a wet and cold day so most people stayed home. The few that did come to our street dance were rewarded with some delicious roasted corn (Mexican style, or buttered) I would like to thank Nora Kuczaboski for her guidance and hard work in preparing the Mexican Corn, it was very authentic corn.
