Winter is just around the corner, and we know it's going to be a cold one. How do we know that? Because it's always cold! Farmer's Almanac predicts we'll have a normal cold, snowy, icy, Minnesota winter.

A Redditor who recently moved to Duluth asked for tips from locals so that he could be prepared for winter. He's never owned a home in a cold, winter climate, but he did spend some time growing up in the Chicago area before moving to Texas.
