The 12 Seasons of Minnesota
Yeah, you thought there were only 4 seasons in Minnesota. Sure doesn't seem that way. It seems that Minnesota weather is all over the place. The good old North Country gives us a wide variety of temps, ranging from -20- to mid 90's or even warmer.
It may seem like maybe Summer might be just a few weeks away. Don't be fooled! Mother Nature is a crafty jokester!
So, to me, it seems there are at least 12 seasons in Minnesota;
Winter; We all know this one. Bitter cold, snow and ice. By far, my least favorite time of the year.
Fool's Spring: Sure feels like Spring, but Minnesotans know Mother Nature is just messing with us.
Second Winter; How about another blizzard just to show who's boss? This can be downright depressing.
Spring of Deception; Aw yeah, now we're talkin'. Nice temps. Yea, Spring is in the air.
Third Winter; Hey, how about just one more round of snow?
Actual Spring; The trees are budding and occasional rain showers are washing away all the Winter slime. Yea, it's here!
Summer; Mild daytime temps and cool nights. Bugs have figured out where you are.
Hell's Front Porch: Hot and humid with the occasional thunder boomer. Maybe even a tornado or two. Great time to get out on the lake and enjoy being scantily clad.
False Fall; That's where we are now. Cooler temps and time to get the warmer wardrobe out but DO NOT put away the Summer stuff quite yet.
Second Summer; It's back! Enjoy the great temps and take advantage of the mild weather to clean up the leaves that have given up for the year.
Actual Fall; Finally here, that grease slide to Winter we call Fall. R.I.P. bugs
And the cycle continues.
