March Is Feeling More Like January
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Jeff Stubblefield is photographing the snowy landscape in late March in an attempt to make the best of what Mother Nature is throwing Minnesota.
“This is not acceptable. And like everybody, even friends who are big fans of winter, are just kind of bored with this now,” Stubblefield said.
And don’t throw tomatoes at your TV when meteorologist Chris Shaffer comes on – he’s just the messenger.
“You’re turning the corner on the month of March and I’m talking about highs in the teens? Disgruntled,” Shaffer said.
And Shaffer has good reason to feel disgruntled like his viewers: temperatures will continue to be in January territory for the rest of the week.
When it comes to snowfall, we usually average just over 10 inches in the Twin Cities in March.
“I think we’re at about 13 and a half, so about three inches over average with still almost two weeks to go,” he said.
But Spring is just around the corner…right?
“I can’t even give you a light at the end of the tunnel! It’s not there. There’s no light!” joked Shaffer.
