One heck of a spring snow storm is moving through Minnesota and the snow cut-off line is just crazy. When I left work I had to clean the snow off my car, the roads weren’t great, and the visibility was low. By the time I got home there was no snow. Just five miles to […]
When you think of Minnesota, you think cold and snowy right? Turns out, having a white Christmas in Minnesota isn’t as likely as you think. According to the Minnesota DNR, the northern half of the state has 85-95% chance of a white Christmas where as the southern half of the state has a 60-75% chance. […]

We love you winter but it is time to move on.
Woke up to 10″ of snow on my driveway. Plus it’s still snowing and seems kind of windy. I think this is a good job for the snowblower. Only a couple more inches and well get a foot! Plus, in a few days, it’ll be all melted.
