From Faribault: Awaiting a blizzard
AS I WRITE, the weather offers no hint of what is to come. Except for grey skies.
The temp is 32 degrees. Melting snow and ice drip from the roof. Roads are clearing in the warmth of the day.
But, oh, how deceiving. Southern Minnesota, from western border to eastern, is in a blizzard warning beginning later today and continuing well into tomorrow. My county of Rice could get up to 10 inches of snow.
That southeastern Minnesota is in a blizzard warning is a rarity. I expect this in western Minnesota. Not here. But fierce winds are predicted, swirling that snow, creating white-out conditions and poor travel.
Be safe out there. And heed the warnings.
