Spring snow in St. Paul


Heavy snowstorms have stalled the arrival of spring here in the Twin Cities. On April 18th as much as seven inches of snowfall was reported in Ramsey County. Macalester College students continue to wait for winter to end as they walk through sleet and snow to class.

Ben Conlon, 21, a junior at Macalester and lifelong Minnesota resident said he hates it, but is “trying not to be ready for summer until May comes around.” Anna Andersen, 20, a sophomore at Mac from Wausau, Wisconsin said, “Hopefully, it melts by June!” After all, “How many igloos can you build?”
