Well, this winter in MN (twin towns) has been well below normal temps across the board. “Average high” of low to high 20s in Jan/Feb has been very elusive- and the almanac forecast was for above average temps.

Let’s hope the yearly forecast continues to be wrong so this summer isn’t 90s and humid after all...

Keep trying, Almanac! I know the science isn’t easy during the Trump years...
