Our latest (and last?) batch of accumulating wet April snow winds down overnight. Snow will be done before the Tuesday AM rush hour.
Winter Storm Warningswill drop off overnight as snow tapers from west to east by early morning. As of 1am general range of 3" to 5.8" (Prior Lake) of wet slushy snow had fallen in the metro.
Totals in Duluth and surrounding areas are between 6" and 10" so far.
The snow won’t last long. I am still expecting a huge warm up with 60s… and possibly 70s by this weekend.
Another wintry blast has buried portions of Minnesota under more than a foot and a-half of new snow, disrupted travel and closed schools. The National Weather Service says 22 inches of snow has fallen in the Lake County community of Two Harbors, with 20 inches at Lake Nichols in St. Louis County.
The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead puts it thus, “WILL IT EVER END?: Storm drops more than foot of snow on western ND, causes multiple crashes in Minnesota”
Some folks are taking this last blast of winter pretty hard. Gary in St. Paul is one of them.
“Why, God? Why us?” said Gary (who asked that his last name not be used), commenting on winter’s lengthy intrusion into spring on St. Paul’s East Side on Thursday April 11, 2013. “I hate snow. I don’t ice fish. I don’t ski, I don’t do any of that ice junk. I like golf balls and sand and flowers. That’s my life, that’s what I like. I don’t know why a person in their right mind would live in Minnesota. Nothing about it do I like,” he said
via Pioneer Press.
Why? MZ has an explanation.

Listen to Prince’s Sometimes it snows in April via DailyMotion.
Update 5:20a: Well there was a moment where it appeared this storm would miss us. Unfortunately it was only a delay in its arrival.
In this “Fake Spring of 2013” I feel a little like the Blues Brothers playing at the country bar behind the chicken wire.

@john_rouleau As I said to someone earlier – This winter is just like the drunk friend who will not go home when you are nursing a hangover.
