Surfing and snowing, all in a May Day
Only in Duluth—or maybe Alaska—will you find surfers out riding the swells after the snowstorm...in May. Check out the patches of white up on the hillside, above the white crest of the surf.
Duluth got more snow last Friday than in all of March and April combined. It wasn't enough to pull my cross-country skis out of the attic, I'm not that desperate. But it's a reminder that we're here near the northern edge of urban civilization. Any snowier or surfier than this and it's a Bering Sea outpost.
