Winter is back

By: MNTornado, 7:37 PM GMT on November 11, 2012

You may have noticed a chill in the air this Thanksgiving weekend. The temperature took a nose dive as the skies went from clear blue to cloudy again and finally got us cold and wet with wet heavy snow late Thanksgiving evening. It snowed all night long and we woke to white on the ground again and freezer temperatures again.

The nice warm Twin Cities weather we have been enjoying these last few days is gone, at least for the time being. The way this Winter is going, who can tell?
