Well right now the roads are just wet. I drove over to Glenwood for a master power window switch for the other car and the roads going North/South were beginning to drift over from the NW winds.
The snow is just so damned thick and heavy and with the temps hovering right at 32* it hits the road and melts, but the yards are something else.... 3 inches of the white stuff. Can't wait -Wednesday should be a pretty much a full melt-off day and then through the weekend if we don't get anymore snow quite abit of the frost in the ground will melt and we should really be on our way to getting some normal temps around here according to the weatherman.

um yeah, March 31 was nothing I guess. We had 73* IIRC on Wednesday, but yesterday brought this look for today. Oh, and our daytime high today will be about 7* below the average overnight low for April 26th.
Temps are not supposed to be over 40* until Monday afternoon. Yes, I'm going loony.
We are not supposed to see normal temps in the forseeable forecast either.
luckily we only recieved about 5 inches in Sauk Centre, but 25 miles to the NW they recieved 12" of heavy white stuff.

Yea this is ridiculous, we got hit pretty hard in Fargo too, I'd have to say at least 8", probably more. At this rate there will still be snow when school gets done.

Just go into Mankato. Glad I didn't take my winter tires off. Did I ever mention how much I hate driving?
