That ought to do it! Judge issues restraining order against winter to keep snow away

As the old joke goes, everyone complains about the weather but no one ever does anything about it.

But a judge in Minnesota has decided enough is enough – and issued an emergency restraining order on Thursday against defendants named as Old Man Winter, Mr. Snow and Minnesota Meteorologists, according to CBS Minnesota.

“The defendants are enjoined from permitting any more snowfall this winter in the ‘Restricted Geographic Regions’ of Minnesota; and especially within Hennepin County,” Judge Kevin Burke ordered.

He also offered a tongue-in-cheek aside, telling the “defendants” they were free to continue their exploits in Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota and North Dakota.
