Looking forward to the next 6 months of people claiming that climate change isn't real because it's cold and it snowed.

Thanks for the reminder of why I left Minnesota. I can't imagine already seeing snow again so early.

I hate it when Mother Nature goes off her meds.

erikj3.....people do that to poke Climate Change evangelists a little because you and your ilk do the same every time it's unseasonably hot, or dry, or there's too many hurricanes, etc. I think there's still many people who believe weather and the climate constantly change due to factors other than ones that are politically convenient.

It's called an early snowstorm. We had them in the 1700's too.

More water in the atmosphere is expected with climate change, and jet stream loops may become more extreme and pronounced. That will make this sort of weather more common.

A story about "northwestern Minnesota", and all the pictures are from North Dakota. I realize it's just across the state line, but doesn't someone in NW MN own a camera?

erikj3: Is it climate change or global warming? What's the convenient excuse today? The weather on this planet has been changing since before man existed. It will continue to change as long as we exist and thensome.

Accumulating snow in early October? Man, that's depressing. Now I know why virtually nobody lives in the NW part of the state.
