Loving this Weather!

March 19, 2012

What happened to winter, or spring?  It feels like summer up here!

You may have heard me (or most people in the upper-Midwest) mention about our crazy warm weather here!  Here?  Oh yeah, Minnesota.  a.k.a. Minne’Snow’Ta.

A typical winter here for Minnesota starts somewhere between September and November.  We are usually covered in snow by Thanksgiving, and for sure by Christmas.  Then – in January the sub-zero temperatures kick into high-gear – and most of Minnesota stays indoors until April or May.  Sometimes June.

This year though? I’m pretty sure there was enough snow to shovel my driveway 3 or 4 times. THAT’S IT! It was for sure the first Christmas I ever remember without snow on the ground.

And since January our temperatures have been anywhere from 10-70 degrees….

But then this week, our temperatures have been in mid-upper 70s – and even broke into 80 degrees on Sunday. So we’ve been outside constantly, and building gardens!

Usually spring breakers are fleeing Minnesota to see the sun and take off their parkas for a bit.  But  – this year, it seems as we’re just as lucky as those in Florida.  I’m super excited about it.

I was emailing with one of the reps from Step2 about the water table that I’m reviewing, and she told me that she was jealous of our 70 degree weather.

It’s about DANG time that someone is jealous of MN weather Winking smile

I am slightly weary of June.  I’m hesitantly betting on a blizzard somewhere in June – that’s how weird this is.

What’s the weather like in your neck-of-the-woods?

    I just love this weather. I wish Minnesota weather was like this all the time,and then I would be less likely to want to move away to Florida all year round. Then again maybe not 🙂

  2. That is CRAZY that you are having the same temps as us (in Houston)… It certainly was an odd winter in most places, i think.

    I’m jealous! We live in the Pacific Northwest and are having unseasonable cold with lots of rain and a little snow! Really need some sunshine!

  5. I think Winter skipped us this year down here in Nashville!!! Been in the upper 80’s for the past week…..and this week they said a cold front was coming through that would drop us down into the whopping 70’s……Some cold front LOL 🙂

  6. I think winter skipped us this year. It snowed once and we got like 1/2inch. We live in the midwest and it has been in the 70s almost all Feb. Loving it !!

    Soo jealous I’ve been sick 5 times in the past two months and I blame it on the weather here in ny it went from 80 to 30 in one week I don’t think it has decided wether its going to be spring or winter yet lol

    • Yeah – I think we’ve got that same line of junk here – It was 70’s/80’s now 30’s-50’s… then this weekend it’ll get up to 70’s again, but then back down again next week. Oi. The roller coaster really does make for a lot of sickness!

  8. This winter picture makes me want some snow!!

    I know this post is old, but I “miss” MN/WI winters! Living in Cali stinks when there really is no change of seasons.
