Let It Snow, Let It Snow....

I asked for it and my prayer was answered! Serious snow at last! About 5 inches at my house in St. Paul.

Alas, I DO have to get to work today which from the looks of it is going to be awhile. I'm off to get the snowblower out so I can get out of my driveway.

It's SO beautiful! I wish my camera was working, I'd post a photo.

If you had snow last night, be careful driving and walking today.

What a difference a river makes (Cathy and I have the Mississippi between us).

I haven't been outside yet, but it looks like 1-2" here. Which is still great, but that's still a puny amount of snow for the 14th of January.

Two months and some of us will be dragging our racing bikes out of storage! (If the English language had gender endings, you know for certain that I wasn't talking about me).

Ray: This global warming/El Nino/natural cycle/whatever it is
has extended my biking season for the last few years.

But, I put the racing bike away in October/early November and switch to my heavier bike with the thicker tires.

I always look forward to Spring so I can get my speedy wheels back out!

You want snow? We have snow! 110% above agerage. As long as you own a snowmobile here, you will always have transportation. Or a helicopter...

Terry must live near Minnehaha Creek and gets those "creek effect" snows like they do on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and Buffalo, NY.

I was up on the Keeweenaw Peninsula one time and they had a totem pole erected to record the all time annual snow depth record: something like 60 feet of snow, one year.

Or, he has a long list of "boss, I won't be in today" excuses that he can make use of when necessary.
