TV Station Predicts Snowfall In Most Minnesota Way Ever
This time of year, we're used to seeing snow in the forecast, but leave it to one TV station to predict our latest snowfall in the most Minnesota way ever.
Snow in the North Star State in November and December is about as common as encountering a red light at one of the 216 stoplights along West Circle Drive here in Rochester. So I'm guessing that forecasting more of the white stuff-- even if it IS one of our first snowfall events of the season-- can get a bit monotonous.
But not for the weather crew up at WCCO-TV in Minneapolis. While EVERY media outlet across the Land of 10,000 Lakes has been including the latest Winter Weather Advisory (or Winter Storm Warning for parts of Minnesota north and east of Rochester), they went a step further and described the possible snowfall amounts in the most Minnesota way possible.
According to a graphic on the WCCO social media pages posted late Monday titled 'Do You Need To Worry About The Snow Tuesday (translated into Minnesotan),' the legend for the northwest part of the state snow will likely miss this time was 'Yeah, no.'
Meanwhile, the part of the state included in the snow advisory was titled as 'No, yeah' and the small portion of northwest Wisconsin (where the lake effect could dump much more of the white stuff) was titled 'Aw, jeez'.
Ha! That pretty much nails how Minnesota talks about snow, doesn't it? Heck, it looks like the only thing missing was the usual 'Uff da!' (which is getting a little dated these days) or 'Ope!' (which is now ridiculously overused, am I right?)
