Winter is finally here

Well we finally got our first real taste of Winter

Yesterday as I watched the looming storm from the West as it crossed South Dakota and then crossed the border into Minnesota. It was dumping lots of wet heavy snow and I was preparing for the worst here in the Twin Cities as it approached. We started getting snow around 10pm CST and I stayed up all night watching the reports, the radar, and looking out the window. I had already seen reports of 8 inches of snow in Marshall, MN about half way across the state. The Twin Cities is on the far Eastern side of Minnesota so I often get to watch what the storms will do before getting here. I was sure that when morning came, there would be anywhere from 3 to 6 inch of wet slippery white stuff on the roadways. By early morning the snow started tapering off, but when I looked out the window about 5am, all I saw was a thin coating of snow on the lawn and wet roads like after a rain storm. It turns out that the storm started to loose much of it's moisture and snowfall in the Twin Cities ranged from 0.4 inches to 2.0 inches. We got the 0.4 where I live on the South side of the TC. The following link from the NWS shows how the snowfall panned out last night across the state of Minnesota.

Hi MN, While you watched the snow I watched the smoke rising from bushfires!!!


You got brush fires there eh. Hope you stay safe.

In the mean time, we are getting even more taste of Winter with the cold air coming out of the Canadian North into the Midwest. Temperatures of teens F at night with highs in the 30's F. Cold and more cold this week.
