Actually, Summer comes early in Minnesota.
MPR social media savant Julia Schrenkler can prove it.
This winter pushed Minnesotans to the point that open water on the Mississippi = waterskiing on April 21! I stood on a snowbank to get this vid. Wish our friend Lyn was in the frame, she was waving and whooping to the crew out there.

About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
