Winter not coming
by pat n Thursday, Jan. 19, 2006 at 2:33 PM

Colorado mountains have lots of snow this year, but people can forget about having a good time at the winter carnival and other cold season events in the Upper Midwest this year ... winter isn't coming.

Winter not coming...

Mild weather since Dec 21 has made for weak ice on lakes and little or no snow in the fields and woods.

Annual temperatures at Minneapolis have been above "normal" since 1997.

What needs to be done about this?

In 2001, the National Weather Service increased it's "normal" annual temperature at Minneapolis from about 44.7 F to about 45.3 F, reflecting the average for the latest 30 year period.

Increasing the "normals" isn't the answer is it?

What is?
