The End of Winter


Flippist World Headquarters, Anoka, Minnesota, February 21, 2014

   Today should be the last full day of below freezing temperatures this year. If the long range forecasts are to be believed we shouldn't have any freezing temps at all in April  which should hold until November. This winter was notable here for the snow and the continuous cold. We didn't have that much more snow than usual, but what we did have stayed the whole winter—no thawing in January or February to speak of—so whatever fell just stayed.

   I'm beginning to think I should spend winters somewhere warmer- like Iceland where it was consistently 30-50°F warmer than here!

It has been below zero here for the last couple of mornings. There is a ship out on the horizon that has been sitting there for several hours. I think it's stuck in the ice.

WhiteWoW! When it starts to warm up don't be standing around underneath those icicles, Prof.

And we think of Iceland as being so cold!

November through March, Iceland is generally warmer than South Central Minnesota. April and October are about the same. May and September Minnesota is warmer, and is much warmer in the summer.
