Ahhhh, spring in Minneapolis.  This was taken this afternoon downtown.  http://www.startribune.com/local/203620011.html  

Anyone else in the path of this storm?

Updated pic from 4/19/13 8:30am...looks like mid January!

And now it is April 22, and here is a pic of the weather right now.  You can't see the flakes but we are expecting 4-6 more inches and it's coming down hard.  Ugh!

No winter storms here, but a lot of rain and thunderstorms. We had a tornado warning yesterday, and we still have a flash flood warning in effect.

This I just took from my from porch.  It is still coming down.

They are talking about a minimum of 6-9 inches in the metro, some places already have 10 inches in the state.  Yuck!

And it FEELS exactly like December. I sat in horrible traffic coming home, the roads are covered with slushy ice. And it is only like 30 degrees. :(

At this point I will take allergies over shoveling.  :/

Last week during another snowstorm (ugh) we had that thunderstorm/snowstorm thing.  It is always so odd to hear thunder when the snow is coming down.  Odd weather, for sure.

We are finally warm , for the moment anyway :)

It is getting pretty old, I'll tell you.  My 1st grader is supposed to start running club next week...I hope they can train outside.  This is ridiculous, hoping to have snow melted by May.
