O is for Only in Minnesota!

It is April 20th. This morning, in Minnesota, I woke up to this....

We have a saying here that goes like this...only in Minnesota! Yes, that's right. Only in Minnesota can we go from 75 and sunny to 30 and snowing in the span of 5 days. I remember a day many, many years ago when I was still at college in St. Cloud. It must have been in the spring, possibly April, and we had snow in and cold in the was probably in the mid-40's, but by late that afternoon the sun was shining and it was in the low 70's. Students who had been shoveling their sidewalks earlier in the day were now suntanning on their roofs. Again, say it with me this time...only in Minnesota!

While the snow IS still pretty, the best thing I can say about it in will melt much more quickly!

God bless you all my friends.


  1. It's even hot here Trudy .....for this time of the year. What a shock you must have had to wake up to snow,Lovely to here from you.
    Take care.

  2. Girl we had snow on Monday. Only in Michigan. We have the same type of weather as you. Crazy that is the kind of weather we both have.
