Just Another Minnesota Winter
Just another Minnesota snow storm I guess you could say. Why Do I live here? I find myself each year asking that question more vehemently. I hope you enjoyed the picture of our metro-dome collapsing from all the snow here in Mpls MN. Thank goodness they cancelled the Vikings game, even before the storm because they knew what we were going to get. The Minnesota Vikings will now be playing at Detroit instead of our metro-dome. How Minnesota is that? It is now around 30 below windchill here in Minnesota. Wow, that is just sheer craziness.
I will tell you that it was quite fun watching and listening as folks at the local grocers and liquor stores babbled of the storm of the century that was foretold. It was as if they had never seen or heard of a snow storm. I mean, we live in Minnesota and we have to expect snow and lots of it. I did have many a chuckle yesterday because people were so funny yapping about the big storm that was coming.
Yesterday we had over 17 inches of snow in our metro area. It started at Midnight and went all through the next day. My plow guy never showed up in the morning and it kept snowing. My driveway looked like a white prairie. Thank goodness I was up late on my computer as I saw a plow guy down the street. You must envision this funny scene as I threw on my leather coat, boots and mittens and muddled through the foot of snow packed road at one in the morning. I ran to the plow guy and waved my hands as he plowed one of my neighbors driveways. He finally shut off his big plow and screamed out, what? I said, " Hey, I live right down the street here, please plow my driveway. He said no problem, I do charge fifty dollars though. I told him it would be quite worth the money. Back on the snowy drifted foot high snow back to my house I went. I felt so happy knowing that my home would be able to be seen again.
I have pictures here for your sheer enjoyment. No worries, you can laugh as you review the winter wonderland.
