First flakes

October 25, 2012

  There’s something amazing about the first snowflakes of autumn. Thursday began with steady rain, which changed to a mixture of rain and snow. Only a trace of snow was recorded at MSP airport, but most people were talking about the flakes, not the rain. Lost in the snow buzz was the fact that the rain tally at MSP airport was .75”, a new record rainfall total for October 25th in the Twin Cities.

  We’ve been in a drought, so it was great to see a generous dose of rain. Despite the soaking, our October rainfall total is still three-quarters of an inch below normal in the Twin Cities. We’re also about three and one-half inches below normal since September 1st. It would be nice to see more rain before winter sets in….
