Weather WTF: Tornado drills and snow in the forecast

Yep. We need more of this crap.
Yes, yes, we all know the tried and true saying, "If you don't like the weather in Minnesota, wait five minutes."

It's cute, but frankly, WTF?

There's still slush clogging the city's lakes. Half the state may wash away at any moment. Weather forecasters are talking about snow on Friday or Saturday. And next week the entire state has been signed up for a tornado drill.

Can't we be done with winter? Please? It's time to stash the down jackets and start swatting skeeters.

Just sayin.'

Friday's weather forecast has been canceled due to lack of interest (with apologies to WCCO).

And that line where winter changes to spring is when you need to be prepared for them, not when the snow is gone! I have lived in areas in the north where we would have violent storms (like tornadoes) followed by snow, just bc its snowing doesn't mean they cant happen, and if you understand a bit about weather you would know that its that warm weather that melts the snow that adds the potential for severe weather, so yes its good to practice before it happens...
