We live on a lake on west side of Minneapolis, it froze over for the winter just 4 weeks ago (or so I thought). People were out walking on it last Thursday. Temperature went up to 55 on Christmas Eve & 54 Christmas Day (all-time records), with all-day rains - this morning the ice was gone. We've lived here since 1991 and never saw anything this bizarre. Local weatherman said Santa might show up in shorts and a red convertible. What next?
