A few things about the first Minnesota snow:
It’s usually in October.
It’s usually just a little dusting. It usually melts within hours.
It’s usually not a forecasted accumulating snow storm in November.
I am never prepared, regardless of when it happens or how much snow it is. I rush out to get snow boots and gloves. Every year.
All of us Minnesotans usually moan and grown about the first snow, but at the same time are secretly a little excited about it. After all, it’s the first snow.
This year’s first Minnesota snow:
Not in October.
More than a dusting, although much less that the forecasted 6-10 inches we were supposed to get.
It has not melted, and nor will it melt. Thanks to the freezing cold temps that are forecasted the next week.
I rushed out to get Evie boots and gloves the day before the snow, along with every one else in the Twin Cities. Seriously, we live here. When will we learn?
And all of us Minnesotans moaned and groaned, but at the same time we were a little excited about it.
After all, it’s the first snow.
