One of the first things I do every morning is peek at the 5-day forecast on my phone. I got very excited when I saw 48 degrees as the projected high for Saturday. Beach weather! People will be strolling all around the Twin Cities wearing t-shirts and shorts. In the meantime, we are all still cooped up inside, watching the snow fall and wishing the ice on our driveways would magically melt as we continue with our "winter eating."
