I know my wife and I, after not having a Vikings game to watch on Sunday, looked out the window at about 4:30 p.m., couldn't believe how low the sun angle was now in the afternoon. Minutes later, of course, the sun would actually set. It is nice to have the sun rise a little after 7 a.m., but the days certainly are getting short. Just imagine if we lived up in Alaska when we would have 24 hours of darkness during parts of the winter. At least we don't have to deal with that, right!? Parts of Minnesota and the Upper Midwest did see some win- tery weather Tuesday into Tues- day night (Nov. 1) as an area of low pressure dumped some snow across southeastern Minnesota, Wiscon- sin, and northeastern Iowa. So far, we have been fortunate to have missed the snow. For some of you, however, I know you are anxious for some snow for us. I guess I can wait a couple of weeks. The winter usu- ally seems long enough... Have a great upcoming week- end! Weather history: In 2003, parts of southwestern, west central, and north central Minnesota "received anywhere from two to six inches of new snow." For example, Canby had the most at six inches of snow, and Benson measured five inches of snow! Weather facts: Absolute zero is the lowest temperature pos- sible;-273.15 Celsius and-459.67 Fahrenheit.
