The National Weather Service is warning people about what is being considered as a very strong Spring storm coming through the midwest late this week.
URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE National Weather Service Duluth MN 405 AM CDT Wed Apr 10 2019 ...POWERFUL SPRING STORM WILL BRING STRONG WINDS AND HEAVY WET SNOW TO NORTHEAST MINNESOTA AND NORTHWEST WISCONSIN... .A strong early spring storm will bring heavy precipitation and strong winds to the Northland on Thursday, with near-blizzard conditions possible during the day Thursday. Precipitation will begin this evening with an area of light to moderate snow in east-central Minnesota and parts of northwest Wisconsin lifting northward, with heavy snow possible from Brainerd to Hinckley to Hayward before daybreak Thursday morning. This first round of snow may lift northward into northern Minnesota during Thursday morning followed by a brief lull, then a period of very heavy snowfall Thursday afternoon into Thursday evening for all of the Northland, including the Twin Ports. Snow may turn to a wintry mix in northwest Wisconsin Thursday night before ending from west to east Friday, possibly changing over to rain or drizzle. In addition to the precipitation, very strong east winds will cause blowing snow to significantly reduce visibility. Travel conditions could be life-threatening for a period Thursday afternoon with rapidly accumulating heavy, wet snow and winds gusting to 40 to 50 mph, strongest in the Twin Ports and along the shoreline western Lake Superior.

I am no longer having fun. How is a guy supposed to work on his (already terrible) golf game when 1.5 feet of snow could be on the ground by this weekend?
For real though, it sounds like this could be a very dangerous storm and if you plan on traveling during the storm, be extremely careful and cautious.
