MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – How do you explain our wacky weather? On Sunday, the thermometer and calendar did not go together.
At MSP, the thermometer hit a high of 47 degrees with warm sunshine throughout the Twin Cities. It meant a bonus weekend of nice weather for mid-December but the trade-off could be the first brown Christmas in years.
But with the sun shining at Lake Calhoun, people were happy to make that deal.
“You know that’s fine, that’ll happen in good time. This is an exercise of patience. This is an exercise of loving and being in the moment,” said one woman enjoying the lake.
“You don’t get to do this in the middle of December. Last year we were snowed in. It was the snowpocalypse,” said another person walking the lake.
And when was the last time people were golfing in mid-December? Sundance Golf Course in Dayton was open on Sunday but the greens were a tad brown.
