I'm not a winter hater; quite the opposite, but it's just too long for my liking. If we could take a month off of winter and slap it onto summer -- Minnesota's climate would be perfect for me, but Mother Nature never asked for my opinion.

After a cooler weekend with some snow, things begin to warm up significantly beginning today, with highs forty or better for as far as the eye can see.
