This Hennepin County Judge Kevin S. Burke is just as upset about winter as we are! On Thursday, a restraining order was "granted" against "Minnesota Meteorologists, Old Man Winter, and Mr. Snow." It says the restraining order was filed by "Citizens of Minnesota."

In Judge Burke's decision, he writes that "Minnesotans are hardy people. They enjoy their winters and have a good relationship with the Defendants. But there comes a point when the trust between the parties is ruptured."

But why are Minnesota meteorologists on this? They don't make the weather, they just report it! Well according to Judge Burke, that's part of the problem: "There is compelling evidence in the record that Minnesota meteorologists have conspired with the other defendants to increase television and radio ratings."

Don't worry Old Man Winter, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, and Wisconsin are all still fair game!
