Still Winter

This winter has been long,
a far cry from last year.
In 2012, the winter severity
index was a mere 18.
That's the second lowest since
the DNR began keeping record.
How do they decide the winter severity index?
A point is recorded for each time the temperature
 is below zero during a 24-hour period,
each day the snow depth is greater than 15 inches.
Here is a link to the MN map with WSI counts:
It place us at about a 41-50.
Anything over 100 will hinder wildlife.
It appears northern Minnesota had some
higher numbers than east central.
