There are many, many, many good things about Minnesota life. Really, there are.
This isn't one of them.
The first measurable snow this winter came in the third week of October, 2012. Six months later, this was the scene that greeted me this morning. This in itself wouldn't be so bad, except for the fact that our humid, sultry summers are about 4 months long...this means that of the two pleasant seasons of the year, spring is approximately 3 weeks long, and fall a mere 5 weeks or so.
Sigh. I need to think about that retirement to Costa Rica.
