I ma so sick of the rain I could just scream. I need to convince hubby we need to move where there are 4 seasons!


Stay safe everyone in Minnesota!! and enjoy that snow
Ya, if it is winter I prefer snow and some clear days, not lots of grey skies with drizzle/light rain.

The worst winters I spent in MN were the ones where there was very little, if any, snow. Lots of grey skies, no whiteness to brighten things up. I'd flirt with the idea of returning there if I received guarantees there'd be 60-70 inches of snow there every single year, without fail!

Minnesota Department of Transportation

Says "difficult" driving conditions from Belle Plaine to St. Peter. That is a very open stretch of road and with the blowing and drifting can make for some not so nice driving. Schools in that area are all delayed 2 hours. I would hold off as long as possible before you go down there or wait until tomorrow if you can.

Thanks, that is just what it was, open, windy and drifting Had to drive there and back today. It wasn't too bad, just so slow. Heard on the radio there were over 1,000 car spinouts. So painfully slow.

Even raining up here in Duluth! So nice to see a bit of variety in MN winter. Personally, I'd love to see spring launch tomorrow, the snow melt by early February, and 80 degrees in March.

The last thing we need is another round of above average temperatures, but that is what is occurring again. We have a massive drought that is ongoing on the Plains and they definitely need precipitation and cold temperatures.

Today is the last of the above average temps, down to the teens tomorrow. I don't think we got much rain here but it's hard to tell. My outside thermometer said 83 degrees this morning--I think it finally died .

We have freezing drizzly rain up here in Bemidji area. Yesterday was so warm I could take our new puppy out to potty without having to pull on a jacket at all. The couple of inches of snow accumulation we have here (!) looks like lace this morning. It is pretty much ice crystals melting like in the spring.
