Winter has returned yet again to northern Minnesota. We are currently experiencing a weird mix of rain and sleet. The forecast was calling for pretty significant ice accumulations but so far that hasn't happened (not in Grand Portage anyway). I just went out for a short drive to check the conditions and see if there was any ice buildup on the trees anywhere (makes for GREAT photos!) but there was little to be found. The roadways are more slushy than anything. As always, our local plow crews are out making sure the roads are in the best shape possible considering the conditions!
