'Cue the trombone': The Internet reacts to the Twin Cities' late snow


It was supposed to be our biggest snowfall of the season, but when people in the Twin Cities woke up Tuesday morning there were no fresh flakes to be found.

Initially up to 6 inches of snow was forecast for the Twin Cities, with snowfall beginning overnight. But the storm didn't intensify as expected and projected totals dropped.

Although some areas saw the snow pile up for the morning commute, many Minnesotans were left wondering where the heck the snow was. A few people were disappointed – others not as much.

Here's a look at some of the reactions.

Dana Winkler commented on the BringMeTheNews Facebook page saying, "I'm kind of disappointed. I may be in the minority here, but I WANT one big snow maker before winter ends!"
