Drinking coffee in the morning with a fresh coating of snow is always nice, unless it happens in May. Then it's just a bunch of BS. 

So goes the way of the world in parts of Minnesota on this May 9 morning, where more than 10 inches of white stuff coated the ground in Duluth and parts of the North Shore. 

Amazingly, there are even snowfall reports of 3 inches of snow way down in southwestern Minnesota. Alas, here are the cruel snow totals, brought to you by Pet Evolution
