MINNESOTA’S WARMING WINTERS

MINNEAPOLIS _ Bundled up against the icy cold and drifting snow, Don Olson has tended the trail of a popular cross country ski race in Minnesota for years.Fixing problem spots on the Vasaloppet’s route often meant braving the freezing temperatures and frigid winds that have always defined this state. But recently, things have changed: Instead of plodding through the snow, Olson and other volunteers had to start making it. Winter just isn’t the same in Minnesota these days. And as the latest season ends, residents say their lifestyles are changing with it. Minnesota is among the fastest warming states, and Minnesota’s winters are warming faster than its other seasons.
