About the only snow left in this yard is in the form of game character Super Mario built by Tony Holter at 701 14th St. N. in Moorhead, Minn. The sculpture, which took about 12 to 15 hours of work, was created about two weeks ago. Warm weather has melted away almost all of the food color Holter used to colorfully finish the character. If the warm weather continues, Old Man Winter may not need a leap day to break an old record.

Last year, snow crowded the streets of Dickinson, often causing cars to drift into snow banks on State Avenue in Dickinson. Such is not the case this year as the same stretch of road, pictured below, was dry Tuesday. Meteorologists, who formerly predicted a cold, snowy January, said the jet stream stayed north of the state. If the weather pattern continues, southwestern North Dakota could be in for a warm February.
