We Won! No Snow, Yet

We broke the record for the latest snowfall ever. We haven’t had any snow over a half inch yet this year, and as of yesterday, we broke the record. According to the state climatologist:

As of December 21, the Twin Cities has not received a daily snowfall at or above one half inch. This is the longest the Twin Cities has gone into the snow season without a single daily snowfall of at least one half inch. The old record was December 20, 1998, when it snowed two inches. There still has not been a daily one half inch snowfall as of the morning of December 21, so the record may be expanded.

Fortunately, snow is on the way tonight and tomorrow, and we may see a few inches. Will it be a white Christmas?

    I sat in a meeting today and watched it go from pouring rain to gigantic snowflakes. That was at about 2:00 this afternoon. Haven’t looked outside since then. I kinda don’t wanna know.
