The town of White Bear Lake is very nice.
And yes, good for singles.

To drive to Minneapolis about 15 -? Depending on rush hour and time of day.
Here is a link to the White Bear Lake Area Chamber of Commerce
http://www.whitebearchamber.com/

If you pull up www.mapquest.com
and put in White Bear Lake to Minneapolis you can see the location.

Maple Grove is pretty much the best place to live in the state in my opinion. You made a great choice. But Paul, you are pretty much moving to the state at the worst time possible!! Right when you get here, that is when the snow starts to come, and it won't be gone until late April! You are probably going to be shocked insanely! By March, you'll probably be asking every day, "Why did I come here?" But once the summer comes, I think you'll love it. And be sure to go to some of MG's lakes, they are awesome, I love boating on them. By the way, when the lakes are frozen you'll start seeing little hut things all over the lakes, those are normal, they are for ice-fishing. Be careful driving on the ice!

LonghornPaul, you probably won't believe this but in February 20 degrees will feel like a heatwave and you'll be walking to your car in shirt sleeves if it hits 30.

Default 70's in February

Only once in the last 68 years.

From the U of M:

Minnesota and the Upper Midwest experienced extraordinary warmth during the first week of March, 2000. Temperatures soared into the 60's and 70's on March 4th through 8th, breaking many maximum temperature records. Maximum temperatures in the 70's have occurred during the first week of March in only seven prior years in Minnesota's 110 year modern climate record.

The 72 degree temperature reported in the Twin Cities on March 5th shattered the previous record of 56 degrees set in 1937, and was 39 degrees above the historical average. The 39 degree departure is among the largest positive temperature anomalies ever recorded in the Twin Cities. The 72 degree temperature also marked the earliest date of a 70 degree value found in the Twin Cities modern climate record.

The period spanning the last 70 degree day of the autumn to the first 70 degree day of the following spring averages 175 days for the Twin Cities. It has been as long as 209 days (Sep 9, 1981 to Apr 23, 1982). Before this season, the shortest such period was 131 days (Nov 6, 1893 to Mar 17, 1894). During the 1999-2000 season, the last 70 degree day was on Nov 13, 1999 while the first of the 'spring' was Mar 5, 2000 which yields a period just 113 days in length. This season's '70 degree free period' was 18 days shorter than any other in record

That is for the Twin Cities, I was living in Marshall then. It is often warmer there then in the Twin Cities. I know in 2000 our golf course OPENED for the season the first week of March and we did quite a bit of golfing that month. The shorts golfing in Feb was probably 2002 or so.
