“I think it’s always hit or miss. You never know what you’re gonna get in Minnesota. So it’s fine,” said a mom with her two daughters in tow.

At CHS Field in Lowertown, bundled-up kids were hunting eggs.

“I think it’s in the middle. It’s not that really cold to me,” said a tough child, looking for eggs.

To compare, last year’s Easter — which was two weeks earlier than this year — the high was 77 and there was no rain or snow.

It was one of the first major holidays with a semblance of normalcy, putting in perspective the cooler air.

“This year we’re definitely seeing other people [laughs], as opposed to just being at home,” said a dad with his kids.

The warmest Easter on record in the Twin Cities was in 1977, when it got up to 88 degrees. And the coldest: 1894, when it got down to minus-2. Sunday was somewhere in the middle.

“It’s sort of coldly normal. It’s like a normal weather but it’s also cold,” said an egg hunter.
