Weather is such an amazing thing.  This past weekend much of the Twin Cities Metro area was under a frost warning as temperatures dropped into the low 30’s.  Yes.  It was May 16.

According to local TV Station KARE 11 some parts of northern Minnesota hit a new record for amount of snowfall on May 16.  International Falls, MN had 0.3 inches of snow.  Bringing the 2008-2009 winter total to 125.6 inches.

Yesterday, May 19 the Twin Cities Metro area hit a new record high, according to the Pioneer Press.  The record was broken by a whopping 8 degrees at 97.  Yikes!  You’ve got to love this line from the article though:

While southern and central Minnesota roasted, the northern part of the state remained cool. When Granite Falls recorded a whopping 100 degrees at 4 p.m., Grand Marais reported a breezy 34 degrees, Taggart said.

It is about 400 miles from Granite Falls to Grand  Marais.
