Some might argue that's because it's closer to the equator. Enjoy your hurricanes.

Heavy snows and blizzardlike conditions are nothing new for March in Minnesota.
In fact, even Aprils of the past produced storms of over a foot of the white stuff.
Not to mention snows in May during the Walleye opener. Don't be surprised or
shocked. It's happened many times before, and will in the future.

No plowing because of 'mild to moderate temperatures'? I'm sorry, the most consistent word in the forecast for almost the next week? Cold. It's going to be below freezing during the day and evening hours until about Wednesday. The metro just got 6 inches of snow and the state is just gonna leave it there to freeze and cause a mess on every single road in the cities? That's incredibly helpful -- thanks. We didn't get a dusting, we got measureable, plowable snow.

Apparently nothing happens in Fort Lauderdale if you're reading the St. Paul paper. If it's so nice, why don't you get off the computer and enjoy it?

Keep that happy joy joy thought when September gets here and a hurricane is barreling down on you. I will take twenty snowstorms over a wind gust. Snow, an inconvenience; hurricane, destruction.

Just another sign of the fact that we do not respect the Earth. Climate change is on full display!

Why is everyone acting so surprised--especially in St.Paul? When I was younger the motto/rule of thumb was 'it always snows during the Boy's Basketball tourney'. They are playing basketball, even if it is in that OTHER city!

We get the same weather every year around the state high school tournaments. We get good weather one day, lousy the next. That's what we call spring in Minnesota. Find another avenue for your propaganda.

A March snowstorm in Minnesota. How unusual. Not!
If this keeps up, there might be a two line opener in Northern Minnesota.

Yeah Mark, a March snowstorm is quite the change. I don't think that has happened in.....a year or 2.

Exactly, considering March is typically the second, if not the most, snowiest month of the season. We usually always get a snow storm during high school tournament time, no really surprise here. Doesn't really have to do much about global warming or "disrespecting" mother nature.
