MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Minnesotans began working through the seven stages of snow-related grief just days before Halloween. The first stage: shock and denial.
And then on Dec. 9 came stage two with a vengeance: pain. The metro saw its biggest snow fall with ten and a half inches.
Slick roads and stuck cars only served to worsen the pain. And then months later as April arrived, stage three tagged along: anger.
April’s frequent snow ushered in stage four: depression.
But Monday’s rain and snow led to WCCO meteorologist Chris Shaffer to note in his five-day forecast that stage five – the upward turn – arrived
Stage six, called “working through,” should could come Wednesday, when Shaffer says a few more flakes are possible.
And finally, stage seven – acceptance – should come on Friday when the metro may see sunshine and a possible high of 60.
