I live in Northern Minnesota. I have seen snow in October, one Halloween we got three feet, and what a fun weekend that was.
Right now the weather is on the other side of that extreme. It is 84 degrees at the airport, even hotter, near 90 in a few spots in Northern Minnesota. This is the 11th of October, all the leaves are coming off the trees and this would be a nice day in late July.
Almost tempted to go to the beach.
But seriously, we already broke the all time record high temperature for the day by five degrees, the other shoe is going to drop and we will have white stuff coming down from the sky soon. Two more weeks to get the ski trails finished up would be nice though.
