North Branch, Minnesota in the deep freeze?

North branch, Minnesota is cold.

Well, not really a deep freeze.

But, still much colder than normal.

A lot of complaining and a lot of flowers and tree buds destroyed by the cold.

Many people refused to believe it could freeze yet.

But the average last day of frost is towards the end of May.

But, with little snow and seeing the ground bare for most of the winter...spring is slow a coming!
