Winter in the Twin Cities has been a real doozy, and a recent photo snapped in Eden Prairie perfectly sums it up.
Taken Sunday morning by EPLN contributor Mark Weber, the photo shows a Target shopping cart perched on top of a mountain of snow in the Eden Prairie Center parking lot.
Many comments have been generated by an earlier photo circulating on social media featuring a Target cart on the mound. Since the cart wasn’t there on Saturday night, it’s likely not the same one.
According to KARE 11, as of Twin Cities’ total snowfall has reached a whopping 81.3 inches. This ties with the winter of 1961-62 as the seventh snowiest season on record.
The most snow ever recorded in a season in the Twin Cities was 98.6 inches back in 1983-84. So, while this winter has been tough, we haven’t quite reached the summit of the snow pile yet.
Here’s hoping that spring-like weather comes soon and melts away the snow. Until then, those who aren’t headed to a warmer destination for spring break will have to continue shoveling and dreaming about palm trees and sunny beaches.
