We’re all gonna die!

“For the first time in at least 25 years, Twin Cities air has been declared “unhealthy for all” by the state’s environmental agency.” – from KSTP.com I guess that means I can’t go outside and I can’t breath! OMG what am I gonna do? Oh yea, I’ll probably forget all about it. 😉 Kinda scary […]

Broke Snow Drought

Finally, the Twin Cities snow drought is over. Yesterday we got about 6 inches of snow and does it ever look good. It made driving horrible but once we got home it was fine. 😉

Can you say negative 16?

Our cold cold nights continue. With temps that reach close to -20 at night and highs that only make it -5 it’s pretty cold out. Factor in the windchil and it’s like -50 at times. It’s a good weekend to stay in at watch movies. However we do have to go out daily since my […]

Will it snow?

They are predicting snow! Maybe an inch today or two tomorrow. If that happens it’ll be our first, one inch, snowfall of the season. That’s so pathetic for this winter but I have a feeling the April showers will be snow showers.

Well Hello There

Hey we made it into the new year safe and sound! We played board games at the neighbors and had a few drinks. Good times! Also, over the holiday break, we had our first winter snow storm warning. Which kinda fizzled out. We got about an inch and a half of sleet and maybe some […]

Happy Christmas Eve

Here it is Christmas eve already! We are back in our hometowns and visiting with our families. Everything is covered in white and the temps are very below zero. Burrr. -15 this morning. At least the snow isn’t going anywhere. I wanna wish any and all of my readers a Merry Christmas! It’s Jesus’ birthday […]

We’re gonna have a white Christmas.

It was cut pretty close this year but we will have a white Christmas! The Twin Cities are got about an inch of snow the other day and lots of cold, however my parents in Chatfield got about 5 inches! And, since it can hardly get above 0 during the day, the snow won’t be […]

Ice Ice Baby – What A Workout

I had quite the workout this morning. Freezing rain had covered everything and trying to scrape off the windows was almost impossible. It took me 20 minutes to get enough of a hole to see out so I could drive. It’s amazing how much of a workout goes into scraping off windows, especially when the […]
