Southern Minnesota has officially smashed May snowfall records. The highest ever recorded total for May here is 2 inches — until today. We’re at 10 inches and still falling, with another 3-6 inches expected by late tonight. Roads were shut down this morning, with even plows sliding into the ditch. Thousands are without power, and trees are not faring well with the weight of this snow. Needless to say, doggy and I are staying put for the day. Though I will admit to letting a few expletives escape upon peeking out the window this morning, I am choosing to enjoy the beauty of it and am grateful that we’re not battling tornadoes, which is more typical for this time of year. Merry May!
