Oh my goodness, was it ever! The wind has been blowing non-stop for over 24 hours, gusting over 50 MPH. And this morning we are blessed to have precip in the form of rain, sleet, and snow! The Minneapolis airport has only one runway open, hundreds of flights have been canceled and delayed. The northern part of the state has a blizzard warning and temperatures are dropping down here in the southern part where I live. And just now across the bottom of the news program on the TV, they are announcing school closings!
Welcome to Minnesota people! Our six month season of winter has begun. And in two months I'm outta here.
