I only arrived in Minnesota for the last year or so of Dave Moore’s career. By then, he was only doing a WCCO Sunday morning gig and I failed to appreciate his considerable talent because that really wasn’t a good outlet for it by then.
On Twitter Monday, I asked for people’s names for what the people in my house call “snow boogers,” the clumps of ice and snow that we love to kick off when the temperature is just right.
And, thanks to Steve Swan, I was made aware of this poetic segment that Moore did on the subject. It’s brilliant.

Prince sang that sometimes it snows in April. But for now let's be content with the melt we have going on. Which reminds us of the late Dave Moore's poetic "Ice Chunks" from WCCO-TV/4.

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.
