I had to shovel out around my trash can. The snow was like granite, and the plastic shovel mostly just bounced off. I need to invest in a sledgehammer. I've gotten adapted to the cold, but I will really enjoy the spring.

I noted this in another thread but I was surprised to find that our 30 year average temps jumped rather significantly across the board. For example:

June - 83 (was 79)
July - 86 (was 83)
August - 84 (was 81 or 82)

January - 24 (was 19 or 22)

I also noted that this makes us warmer 6+ months of the year (or moreso for an average year) than many Northern cities, such as New York, Boston, Detroit, Milwaukee, Cleveland and Chicago (Chicago and New York may be 5 months.....but you get the gist).

Pretty cool if you ask me -- this means we're not "so cold" compared to other cities anymore, technically.

Yeah, we have cold winters, but many people think its frozen year round and we live in igloos and mush dogs to work Our summers get pretty hot and sticky, especially the southern half of the state.

Up to 34F here now. Snow is a melten! What a dramatic change in less than 24 hours! Feels tropical out there.

It's looking like an early spring! Nothing below freezing in the forecast for the next seven days. Time to break out the shorts and golf clubs!

I agree, and I wouldn't even say "anymore". On average, MPLS is only 5 degrees cooler than those cities....

And... typically warmer, like you said, in the summer...

The only difference is, in Minnesota it doesn't just get cold it gets very cold.
