Hasn't anyone watched and learned from the wisdom of the beautiful people on Oscar night? Don't you know that we are in a period of devastating global warming?!

We used to get storms like this ten times a season in the 1940's to the the 1970's. Now we're lucky to get two or three a season.
Granted I am still pup of 22 years however I can remember in the late 80s and early 90s getting more frequent and powerful snowstorms. 91 92 were the last year that we really had snow that most people would associate with MN
. Just recently though the snow volumes have started to increase. My mother in law agrees with you Mark that while their may more snow than in recent years it not like it used to be.
I believe weather operates on a giant cycle and that we are just now coming out of a "dry" spell. That is not to say that I don't believe that we can/are harming the environment. I learned in school (college) that evidence is growing in the scientific world that supports this very idea of weather cycling. Some scientist once set on the idea of global warming are changing their opinions.
To keep this Av related, MSP
will have no problem clearing the runways. I grew up in Rochester and RST would get awards for having clean runways during times like these. If they can keep it clean so can MSP
. My main point being, it's MN
, and while snow like this hasn't happened in a while, they know how to handle it.
