April Snow Day Brings Groans, Smiles
An April snowstorm prompted schools to cancel classes and public works crews to re-attach snowplow blades for another pass. The snow brought joy to a last-chance cross-country skier and to people who didn’t have to brave the elements. For the second year in a row, an April snowstorm brought blizzard-like conditions, more than 40 mph winds, and dumped at least eight inches of snow in Maple Grove.
Snow Day for Students
Local school districts called off school for thousands of students. Principal Frank Herman from Cooper High School got creative with his no-school tweet to students.
Last Chance for Skiers
Skiers who may have already put away their winter sporting gear for the season had a chance to dust it back off and get on a trail. We found a lone skier at the Elm Creek Park Reserve who tried one run before saying it was too windy to be enjoyable.
