Why do we live here? The thousands of ice luminaries lighting the path on Lake of the Isles for Saturday’s Luminary Loppet might give you insight on that question.
The evening cross-country ski jaunt is one of numerous events offered for winter lovers of all ages during the annual City of Lakes Loppet, which continues Sunday in Minneapolis.
Earlier Saturday the Penn Ice-Cycle Loppet took place on the lagoon between Lake Calhoun and Lake of the Isles.
The two-day gala is called “the urban cross-country ski festival” for winter outdoors enthusiasts of all ages.

Slushy Mix Today - More Glimpses of April Next Week - February was 6th Warmer than Average Month In a Row
Today will be a blunt reminder that it's still March with a sloppy mix (most roads will be wet most of the day). And then another warm front kicks in with 50F by Sunday; a shot at 60F a couple of days next week. That's average for early April. GFS is hinting at 70F within 2 weeks. We'll see more cold fronts (duh) but the warm signal continues...
I hope you enjoyed the warm front, because the second, even stronger surge of polar air is aimed at Minnesota. No records expected, but after a fairly tame winter, to date, the period Saturday into Monday will bring back fond memories of the 70s. This year the worst of winter may come in one concentrated shot. Time to dig out a few more layers, but a thaw is likely by the end of next week. Any pain will be (relatively) brief.
I'm predicting a lot of running plays on Sunday at TCF Stadium. If the models hold the mercury may never make it above 0F with a wind chill in the -20 to -25 range. What a wonderful way to greet Seattle fans! Between now and then we may pick up an inch or 2 of slush Wednesday into Saturday morning with temperatures near 32 (above). Enjoy the warm front, because the first half of next week will bring back Nanook of the North memories. A short, compact, concentrated blitzkrieg of polar fun!
