It was but 2 or 3 days ago, that I was told that we were supposed to get some snow. Not a huge shocker, since we live in Minnesota. Then I heard that we could possibly get 12 inches of snow. That is when I say “psshhh won’t happen”. So many times, storms either scoot north or south of us, just clipping us, and we get just a few inches.
Well, Sunday night before I went to bed, I peaked outside one last time to get a glimpse of the green grass, thinking that maybe “this” will be the last time I see grass until April (you think I may be exaggerating, but that is what happened last year!) Good thing I took those few seconds to soak in all that green-ness because sure enough, I woke up to a call that our school was 2 hours late and then another that school was closed. That foot of snow? Well, we are are pretty close to that!
It was a GREAT day to get some things done around the home!
If you wonder what winter looks like in Minnesota, here are a few pics to get you into the winter mode! Unfortunately, our snow blower broke as well, which Dan is thinking it is not worth repairing, but was able to get the majority of the driveway plowed
It was snowing so hard that after Dan was finished snowblowing, it looked like he didn’t even touch the driveway because it all filled in again! I have to admit, it was like a snow globe outside and it was BEAUTIFUL!
So all those in the Midwest, you just wait! Your turn is coming too, I’m sure! The snow also brought cold temps (in the 20s, when average high is in the 40s), so nothing like welcoming winter with a blast!
