PULLBACK

UNDENIABLY, SNOW IS A COMMON PART OF THE LIFESTYLE OF A NORTHLANDER. HOWEVER, ATMOSPHERIC FUNK OCCURED IN DRAMATIC FASHION ON FRIDAY, MAY 7TH, 2010. SNOW....PLENTY OF IT....STAMPEDED INTO THE NORTHERN REACHES OF MINNESOTA AND WISCONSIN. A POWERFUL LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM NEAR THE TWIN CITIES WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR UNLEASHING THE SEEMINGLY OUT-OF-SEASON SNOWFALL. GUSTY WINDS OF THE MIGHTY LAKE SUPERIOR BLEW THE SNOW ABOUT....AND REDUCED VISIBILITIES TO LESS THAN A HALF MILE. PROCTOR, MINNESOTA.....WHERE THIS VIDEO WAS FILMED....WAS THE RECIPIENT OF 2.0 INCHES (OR 0.70 CENTIMETERS) OF SNOW. THE DULUTH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT PLAYED HOST TO AN AMAZING 4.50 INCHES (OR 1.7 CENTIMETERS). MANY THOUGHT THEY WERE CLEAR OF THE SNOW FOR THE SEASON. THESE FLAKES PROVED THEM WRONG. A "PULLBACK" TO THE WINTER MONTHS THAT PRECEEDED MAY 2010 "CAME AND WENT" IN STUNNING STYLE.
