Normally, I would be talking about some family photo or some research item I am having trouble with. Today, I am going to share my love for Minnesota weather! I lived in Texas for 7 years. You could pretty much count on the weather being pretty much the same every day. It was very boring. Everyone that I know is complaining about this winter lasting about forever. I do get it, but I love a variety and have never been one to need to see the sun everyday.
I don't know of any weather related issues that my family has faced. My great grandparents were all farmers so I know they had to deal with a lot of adversities with Mother Nature. Many years with drought, many years with too much rain, I am sure they had to deal with the snow but I don't have any journal entries so far that talk about the harsh Minnesota winter.
Happy research everyone. This weather just encourages me to dig deeper and find weather related stories!
