For folks taking a stroll along Grand Avenue in St. Paul, Minn. on Saturday, there was a spring in their step. “We’re super excited for summer. Everybody is going to be in such a better mood,” Katelyn Johnson, from Hugo, said. “I think everyone’s rage level is just way down,” Kurt Christensen, from St. Paul, said.
Spring is on it’s way and so is allergy season, and with all the snow Minnesota has had this year there could be another factor causing stuffy noses. The large amount of snow that built p this year can lead to something called, “snow mold.” It’s something that causes stuffy noses, headaches and sore throats for a lot of people.
It has been 166 days since we’ve seen temperatures in the 60s. With a little luck, Sunday could be the day this streak of cold weather ends. Friends Matt Sandstrom and Brandon Parker are like most Minnesotans, who’ve felt holed up indoors for too long. “Long, long time,” Sandstrom said. “Get to finally enjoy outside, outdoors.”
The snow should be melting this weekend. You can always find weird stuff that was picked up by a plow or shoveled up and dumped somewhere else. And that’s exactly the case in Cottage Grove, where police told the St. Paul Pioneer Press that they found the safe in a partially-melted snowbank.
It may still feel cold enough outside to lose a few of your non-essential extremities to frostbite, but spring fashion waits for no one.
The big demand for craft beers and energy drinks is causing concern in Cold Spring. But these worries have little to do with caffeine or alcohol, it’s the amount of water being used by the company that produces the drinks.
The official start to spring was last week. But the weather hasn’t felt at all spring-like. And those anticipating the sweet taste of spring will have to wait.
It’s been an amazing winter for the Apostle Island Ice Caves, but there’s a good reason why they’re closed now. A time lapse of the caves last year shows how nice the ice looks one day but just 24 hours later, most of the ice is gone.
Spring is officially here, and it couldn’t come soon enough for many Minnesotans. After this winter, most of us are all hoping the worst is behind us. Since December, 61 inches of snow have fallen in the Twin Cities, and we’ve bundled up for 50 days with below-zero temperatures.
The first day of spring is here, and we’re grilling with the experts at Kitchen Window as we wait for warmer temperatures. Doug Huemoeller, the president of Kitchen Window, joined the WCCO This Morning show along with Dan Darvell to grill up some tasty recipes.
Residents in parts of eastern Minnesota are dealing with 10 inches of new snow as the winter season officially comes to an end. Seasoned Minnesotans know that just because the first day of spring arrives on the calendar Thursday, winter-like weather is still very much a possibility.
After 50 below zero days and a top 10 ranking in snow depth this winter, the sound of melting snow Thursday was a much-anticipated sign that spring is near.
One Wisconsin town among the many dealing with frozen waterways and clogged drains because melted snow has no place to go has tried an explosive new approach: blowing up a creek. Town of Onalaska officials hired a blaster to stick several hundred sticks of plastic explosives in the frozen Sand Lake Coulee Creek and blow it up on Friday.
The heat is on. WCCO director of meteorology Mike Augustyniak says that high temperatures in the Twin Cities could top 50 degrees on Monday. On Sunday, temperatures reached into the 40s.
As we move towards spring, the upcoming melt poses a flooding risk where you wouldn’t expect it. Alleys and intersections in Minneapolis could be the trouble spots if there’s a rapid warm up. Fifty-seven inches of snow and ice cover most of the city’s 50,000 storm drains, leaving nowhere for the water to go.
