WCCO-TV’s Frank Vascellaro and Chris Shaffer are hitting the road in the Mobile Weather Watcher to visit the best spots in cabin country during the winter.
It’s the kind of November where the downtown workers shed their coats, and the Uptown dogs frolic in the sunshine.
Movember is just about over, and that means the ‘CCO guys — who some thought looked a little creepy this month — will soon be, or are already, mustache-less.

Many parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin are dealing with drought. We are fine around the Twin Cities, but other counties could use a drink.
This is a question I field quite often at WCCO. It has been hot — the second warmest July on record — and humid this summer.
