The National Weather Service is bringing its flood forecast down even more from earlier, as snowfall has pretty much been non existent for much of January and now February. For many of us our snowblowers have not even been started this Winter, as most of our snowfalls have been easily handled by a good shovel or just simply letting the warm days melt it off.
After three consecutive years of battling floods, the Red River Valley looks as though they may get a break from flood control this year, barring we don't get dumped on the rest of this season. Last year was such a brutal year for snow that some are glad for the break from snow that has come with this season. Others, like snowmobilers, ice fisherman, cross country skiers, plow drivers and businesses, would love to have another season like 2010-2011. I guess it just goes to show that the old saying "If you don't like the weather in Minnesota, just wait a bit" is true, after all we are not out of the woods yet. Things can change awful quick around here.
