Stop me if you've heard this before, it's hot out. Temps made it into the high 80s and into the 90s yesterday across Southern Minnesota, yet there is still a pile of snow at the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport. It's not very white anymore and covered in vegetation but Channel 9 Meteorologist Cody Matz assures us it's snow. 

Check out that dirty pile of snow.



I know it wasn't too long ago that there was still a pile of brown sand encrusted snow in Austin, MN outside a baseball field. It's a touch unnerving knowing that somewhere a sad-looking, brown, sand encrusted frosty the snowman lingers like Pennywise in a sewer, waiting to rise up and reclaim the land as a vast white frigid tundra.

I mean MnDOT is even teasing the fact that 'Winter is coming'. 

Fight the urge Minnesota, embrace the heat and humidity. Break out the misting fan water bottles, construct a slip 'n' slide on that hill in the backyard, or fill up that old plastic kiddie pool and park yourself in it.

The alternative is 50 below windchills and snot-icicles hanging from your nose.
