In honor of the Midwest’s own recently departed polar vortex, we thought we’d highlight we’d highlight a historic postcard from the Virginia Kingswood Booth Vogel Papers at Cranbrook Archives. It appears that these Norwegian citizens are liking the cold about as much as we liked our own winter storm. Honestly, though, they should be happier – at least they have a reindeer to keep them company. Stay warm, everyone!

*Ed. note: eagle-eyed readers may have noted that we accidentally wrote “Finland,” when clearly this postcard is from Norway. Our only excuse is that it is Friday and we have been completely confounded by all this snow. Apologies!
