I have a knot in my throat right now.  The Farmers' Almanac just released its predictions for weather conditions in 2024 for all of the United States, including Minnesota, and I am less than thrilled.  They are being cute with their fun graphics and the phrase "the BRRR is Back!" but that is NOT making me feel better about what is to come.

Farmers' Almanac Just Released Its Predictions for Winter 2024 Weather

I realized last week that I am someone who loves to be flying somewhere new.  I don't care if it is for work or vacation, I LOVE being on the road or in the air.  Being in airports and waiting for flights isn't for everyone but I could live that life without a problem.

Unfortunately, I am sensing that quite a few flights are going to be impacted by bad weather once that snow starts to fall.  The Farmers' Almanac just released their predictions for winter 2024 and as they stated, it is going to be a winter for shivers.

That makes you feel warm and cozy, doesn't it?!

Brace Yourself! Blizzards are Predicted for Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin This Winter

The Farmers' Almanac put a lot of time and energy into figuring out the extended weather forecast for 2024.  I'm not a math genius but they have a few on staff that used mathematical and astronomical formulas to create their latest predictions.  And if you live in the Midwest, you'd better brace yourself and load up on that hot cocoa because we could see some major snow blowing around this winter.

They also stated that our Minnesota winter will be cold with average snowfall.  In other words, if you haven't bought a snowblower, there is a good chance you'll need it.  This is Minnesota.  It snows here and this year, it sounds like the wind might blow it around a bit too.

Can I Work Remotely For All of March, Please?

I am going to just throw this out there for the bosses...I am happy to work remotely for all of March and let someone else sit at my desk if you need the space.  I'll just go find a beach in California for a bit.  Maybe someone could text me when the grass starts to turn green again.  I'll come back when that happens.
