Twins/White Sox (corrected) game postponed--20 inches of snow at Target Field

Summer practice yields home team advantage for MN Twins!


[bringmethenews.com]

As of last night, an astonishing 15.5 inches of snow had fallen in northeast Minneapolis as the Twin Cities bore the brunt of the Saturday system. Both Hennepin and Ramsey counties were under blizzard warnings – the first time this had happened to both Twin Cities counties in 35 years.

And conditions on roads will continue to be a nightmare on Sunday, as more snow is on its way. The National Weather Service says another 4-6 inches is expected to fall across the metro area on Sunday, potentially pushing snow totals above the 20 inch mark.

Northeast Minnesota will get hit harder, with 6-8 inches expected in Duluth, while up to a foot-and-a-half could fall in western Wisconsin. After being closed for much of Saturday, flights in and out of MSP Airport resumed as normal on Sunday morning.

An early victim of the impending Sunday snow is the Minnesota Twins' game against the Chicago White Sox at Target Field, which has been postponed. It's the third game in a row to get pushed back. There could be further postponements in the near future if the NWS' prediction of ANOTHER snowfall pan out.

Weather officials say we're potentially in for another bout of accumulating snow Tuesday night going into Wednesday, which could bring another 4+ inches of snow in southern Minnesota.
Trouble on the roads

Snow plow teams have been working round-the-clock to clear highways and streets, after a treacherous day on state roads.The Minnesota State Patrol said that as of 8:45 p.m. Saturday, 403 crashes had been reported across the state since Friday morning, with 738 vehicle spinouts and 16 jackknifed semis. There are still dozens of road closures in place, particularly in southwest Minnesota, while every road in the southern half of the state is considered completely covered in snow.

It won't be anywhere near as heavy as Friday's fall, but the National Weather Service said parts of the state can expect to see 4-6 inches of snow starting Tuesday.

White Sox, not Cubs.

Twins are now headed to Puerto Rico for two games against the Indians. Temps in the mid-80s. No blizzards.

None of the fans would’ve been able to get there anyway.

Here the local sports talk is why in the heck are ball games in northern cities planned in late March and early April? Why not have the Tigers, e.g., start at Anaheim or Tampa? The Tigers already have had 4 or 5 games postponed due to weather.

Wimps. Pass out the shovels and play ball.

(Not the first blizzard in 35 years. MSP had a Halloween blizzard in 1991 - 30 inches of snow and 35 MPH winds.)



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.
