Attention Rochester, Minnesota - this is not a test. An actual and real sunny and 80  degree day is imminent. IF the forecast holds, Saturday will be like summer.

We've been going thru some damp and cool days, which is not a problem for me, I like the weather no matter because...well, what can we do about it? Talk to a manager?

I took that screenshot Wednesday, April 28th, at 3:45 in the pee emm.  Sunny and 82 on Saturday. Posting proof in case someone calls me a liar or a jerk or a hope-getter-upper if it doesn't happen.

It's a forecast, so yeah, it might not be sunny and 82, but do you want to be the one to jinx it? I thought not.

Well, not 100 degrees. (MarianVejcik)

Magical Rochester Home for Sale on 5 Wooded Acres

This home for sale in Rochester, Minnesota has decor that gives me medieval vibes. The house in general is pretty amazing, even without the furniture, and it sits on 5 wooded acres in the northeast Rochester area.
