Winter in Minnesota
This marks the first day of successive daytime highs of below freezing (32 degrees *F).
That makes 48 days. Below freezing.
I also found out that our area of the state/country has less than 100 days of sunshine. The rest of the days are clouded or overcast. Typically up this way if the sun is out in the winter its because its close to 32 degrees and it feels really warm and the snow starts to melt on the south sides of buildings.
Maybe the overcast days helps to keep the snow that we need to cover the ground?
