There seems to be something of a vicious cycle to this no snow business. DNR climatologist Greg Spoden explained to KARE-11 that the warm ground can warm the air and turn snow into rain.
KARE-11 may be reluctant to look as far out as the holidays, but the crystal ball at KVLY is a little clearer. Clear as in no snowstorms headed to the Red River Valley any time soon. In fact, there's already talk of breaking a record by going deeper into the winter without a one inch snowfall than ever before.
The folks at Northlands News Center are struck by the contrast between the three feet of snow on the ground at this time last year and the barely more than three inches that have fallen this year.
For some of us, the lack of snow saves money. City Hall has not had to spring for overtime or even refill the tanks of the snowplows. But, as WDAY reminds us, some business people do count on snowfall.
In the end, we come back to the words of the sage who once quipped "Everybody talks about the weather but nobody does anything about it." You can do something by sharing your thoughts below.
