Double winter whammy: First snow, then cold
Ready for spring yet?
It's not officially winter yet, but south Washington County and the rest of the Twin Cities got a huge dose of it in recent days. An estimated 18 inches to 20 inches of snow fell in the Cottage Grove area in fewer than 24 hours over the weekend, causing the biggest blizzard to hit the area in nearly 20 years.
Then local residents were smacked with sub-zero temperatures early this week.
