Happy Sunday and happy National Random Acts of Kindness Day. Yes, there's a day for that! I'm glad it may snow again today, so I can pay it forward to whichever one of my shovel-happy neighbors bailed me out the other day. Thank you!
I'm not sure if Mother Nature is being kind or cruel this month, but outdoor winter enthusiasts are sure having fun! A cool foot of snow on the ground across the Twin Cities has sledders, skiers and snowmobilers in a February frenzy!
The airport has measured 22.2 inches of snow this month (fourth-snowiest February on record) and we're a little more than 4 inches from the snowiest (26.5 inches set in 1962). Not sure about you, but I'm rooting for a record. Why not?
A system will slide across southern Minnesota today with 3- to 6-inch totals possible by tonight. The metro may get another light coating. Our weather pattern remains active with another snow chance midweek across the southern part of the state.
