CAMBRIDGE, Ohio—The angry old white men in this no-frills meeting room in a $55-a-night hotel off Interstate 70 are mostly retired truck drivers and coal miners, the kind of blue-collar voters without college degrees who tend to get quoted in Rust Belt diners defending President Donald Trump. They believe the system is rigged, that America has broken its promises to its working class, that the citizens who transport its goods, extract its energy, and shower after work rather than before have been shafted and forgotten. And while “economic anxiety” has become a punchline for pundits who believe Trump’s popularity with this demographic has more to do with racial resentment than trade or wages or health care, the economic anxiety in this room is real. These retirees are at risk of losing the pensions they worked for decades to secure, which is why they’ve gathered to hear the man they trust the most to fight for them in Washington. It’s not Trump.

A Snowy Near-Miss for MSP - The Limits of Weather Models Yesterday, a Twitter follower asked if we're too dependent on models vs. experience and brainpower. Probably, yes. At the end of the day you choose the model(s) you believe are on the right track. Historical perspective and context still provide value no computer can (yet). All these models are online now; everyone is an armchair meteorologist and "inches of snow" get thrown around days before a storm; earlier than we should be attempting that level of specificity. Heaviest snow bands set up southwest of MSP; leave extra time if you're driving to Mankato or Willmar this After a gray but dry Sunday rain showers arrive Monday; maybe starting as a light mix. We dry out and cool off the latter half of next week - the atmosphere probably chilly enough for some light snow next Saturday. It looks like a nippy start to April. Where oh where is spring this year? St. Paul to Mankato: 0 to 10". Talk about a sharp gradient, although … [Read more...] about Paul Douglas on Weather Heaviest snowfall will be in far southern MinnesotaOn edge: Heaviest snow band to set up south and west of MSP
Metro on the Edge of a Heavy, Plowable Snowfall? The Twin Cities metro may wind up on the sharp edge of a heavy snow band. A plowable, 6-inch-plus snowfall is likely over western and southern Minnesota. Significant snow is likely as close as Willmar, Glencoe and Mankato. But a 50-mile wobble in the storm track could make the difference between 2 and 8 inches for southwest suburbs. Travel tonight will be difficult south and west of the metro, but a high sun angle should melt (most) of the snow within 2 days. The beauty of a late-March, Tournament Storm. We dry out Saturday afternoon and Sunday; the atmosphere probably mild enough for some rain Monday and early Tuesday - before a cooler, drier push by midweek. Longer-range models suggest a chilly start to April with more slushy encounters. I keep waiting for a real warm front. One of these days we'll be pleasantly surprised. Hey, Minnesotans get to enjoy multiple springs. Keep the faith.
