How do you like this winter?

January 7, 2012

    It’s been a whimpy winter so far. Temperatures have been warmer than normal, and we’ve seen very little snow. In the Twin Cities, we had an incredible 45 inches of snow at this point in our snow season one year ago.  We’ve seen only 10.3 inches of snow so far this fall/winter.

    After the robust winter of last year, many people seem to be enjoying the mild temps and limited snow that we’ve seen recently.  Although area ski resorts have been able to make plenty of snow, I’ve heard it said that skiers are less likely to visit ski resorts when there isn’t much snow in their own backyards.  Many cross-country skiers, snowmobilers and kids with sleds are hoping for snow, but no big snowstorms are showing up on the computer models over the next 7-10 days.

    At least we’re all saving on our heating bills.  I wonder if anyone has figured out the net effect that this type of winter weather has on our Minnesota economy.
