Escape Rochester, Minnesota On Two New Flights From Sun Country Airlines

As soon as the snow started flying today, I hopped on the 'ol internet and searched "where can I fly to that is warm".  Before I even heard about the new flights leaving from Rochester, I found a flight to one of my happy places, California, for just $74.  Yes, $74.  That flight is from MSP but starting December 15th, I can hop on a plane from Rochester to MSP and catch my flight to sunny California without needing to find a van to take me up to the Twin Cities or a place to park my car.
