We’d love to celebrate by planting trees, but instead we’ll be drinking hot chocolate and shoveling snow. Minnesota may always get more than its fair share of snow, but that’s especially true this year, with the fourth snowiest April on record. At least we’ll save on cooling costs?
By the weekend, the Twin Cities could experience summer-like weather with highs in the 70s, heating up faster than you can say “dead snowman.” 8 inches of snow on Monday and a day at the beach on Saturday – that’s Minnesota!
An April snowstorm may not be best way to ring in Earth Day 2013, but the rapidly changing weather is a great reminder that our planet works in mysterious ways, and that our ecosystems and climates are incredibly complicated. So, here’s to you, Earth. You’re one weird planet.
