Softball-Combating Spring Weather

Monday, July 17th, 2017

So if you don’t know what Duluth springs are like, they are often characterized by a longer winter season with snow followed by rain and cold weather. This means that many spring, outdoor sports have to fight the weather to be able to play outside. For the St. Scholastica softball team, the tarp is an essential piece to help keep the field dry in order to play more games outside during the spring season. When I played softball at CSS, there were many games we had to play down in the cities in sports domes which made for a lot of traveling! If you are considering to become a member of a spring sport, just be ready to be flexible! We always had to keep in close communication with out professors to let them know if we were traveling or not and what our softball schedule was going to look like each week!

Spring?

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

About a week ago, I had a wonderful hike in the woods and felt like I was finally getting a Duluth Spring experience, which is pretty rare! Within a few days, the weather turned sour and up to now, I can’t make anything out of it. Its snowing and the grass is slowly drowning in a thin white coating. Spring?

Duluth Spring Weekend

Sunday, April 23rd, 2017

This weekend was filled with a lot of adventure and activity. The weather was absolutely beautiful for all kinds of outdoor plans. Below are a few pictures that I captured this weekend as I enjoyed the outdoors in Duluth with my friends and girlfriend. With such great spring weather I am excited for summer to get here…we might have to wait a few weeks. The weather outlook is showing 3-5 inches of snow on Thursday. Crazy how you can get a sunburn one day in Duluth and a couple days later you have to put your snow boots back on!

Spring in Duluth

Saturday, April 22nd, 2017

Hello all! Today I wanted to talk about the weather. I understand that this is a topic usually discussed as awkward small talk, when talking about a natural disaster, or when maybe you hear it when you turn the news on in the morning as background noise; whatever your case may be I wanted to talk about the weather in the case of Spring time in Duluth. This past week has been CRAZY when it comes to weather. I have lived in Minnesota my entire life and I thought that I knew a lot about the weather and it’s patterns of unpredictability; I was wrong. This week in Duluth the weather goes as follows; Tuesday: rain, Wednesday: cloudy, Thursday: snow and ice, Friday: Sunny, and today: sunny. I don’t know how it can be snowing one day and then completely sunny and 65 degrees the next day, but in Duluth, MN, that is what happens. However, I wouldn’t change this unpredictability for anything. Today is BEAUTIFUL and the fact that we had snow the other day, makes it that much better.
