Spring has gone on hiatus in Minnesota

The snow started Friday night.  After 24 hours it was still coming down, whipped by the wind into whiteout conditions.  Another 12 hours later the wind had calmed somewhat and the flurries were lighter, but still coming down.  The snow was blown into drifts, and it was hanging precariously from the roof eaves.  Anywhere from 10 to 12 inches were on the ground.  As I headed out to start shoveling my eyes caught sight of the fence.  The snow was perched carefully on the railings and even filled in the horizontal line to the caps of the posts.  At the bottom the snow had drifted partway up.  Two hours of shoveling and the snow was still coming down.  Although this sort of snow is not unheard of in Minnesota in April, it is anything but spring-like, and most Minnesotans are dreaming of green grass.  Soon!

    I hope it Spring comes this week as I am heading back to MN and already had my share of three April snowstorms in one week earlier in the month.

      We’re all hoping for spring. Forecast is looking better for the weekend, once we get over the possibility of more snow on Wednesday. In other words, take your time in getting back to MN 🙂 Safe travels!
