It’s been easy to forget it’s winter this year. Last winter we had two huge storms bury the area under a couple of feet of snow before Christmas, and we didn’t see grass again until sometime in March. As far as I know, this winter we haven’t even had a single snow emergency, and the few times we have gotten an inch or two of snow, it’s melted within a week.

What’s a snow emergency, you say? I’ll let Wikipedia explain. Suffice to say Minneapolis is the only city specifically mentioned in the article.
