anyone there?
Here in Minnesota, we got a record snowfall last week - 22 inches in some
places nearby. Now it's 50 degrees F and all the snow is quickly melting.
A fairly typical mid-March snowfall in late February. This following an
abnormally late start to winter, almost no snow and a January that was the
warmest on record. Our climate does appear to be changing.
