Punxsutawney Phil predicted an early spring...but, so far all I see outside is a lot of winter left on the ground and no spring in sight. But, if you pay attention to the calendar, there are subtle signs that spring is in our near future!

  • Baseball spring training starts today!
  • St. Cloud State University students are on Spring Break starting March 4
  • March Madness starts Tuesday, March 19th
  • First official day of spring is Wednesday, March 20! 
  • The Twins Home Opener is March 28th against the Indians
  • St. Patrick's Day is Sunday, March 17th
  • Easter is Sunday, April 21st
  • Tech High School's prom is Saturday, April 27th

Yes, we have snow in the forecast today, tonight and tomorrow...but, don't get stuck on the details. Soon the snow will be melting away and spring will be all around us! Just a few more weeks, my fellow Minnesnowtans.
