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.

With rare 100% accuracy I predict lawns will be greening up rapidly, in spite of a cooling trend later this week. Nothing arctic - but 5-10F cooler than average for early April. There may be a few flurry sightings Friday into Sunday - probably nothing sticking on the ground; just a reminder that spring is more theory than fact in Minnesota.
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'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!
