Slow start to winter slows snow-dependent sports, businesses


A rainy, mushy, it-could-be-March-out-there kind of day Monday added up to yet more drizzly dismay for skiers, skaters and ice fishermen who are suffering through a miserable start to winter, even as it buoyed the hopes of those who never saw much beauty in frozen Minnesota.

A brown Christmas seems all but certain at this point, with meteorologist Paul Douglas hinting at temperatures in the 50s for the holiday. The mild weather so far meant shuttered alpine runs this week, social media photos of people kayaking on area lakes and an emergency ice floe rescue in Beltrami County as ice broke up on Upper Red Lake, stranding about 50 people who were trying to fish.
