Snow can be fun

It is Friday and Fridays are for fun. For me this week has been mostly about snow. There was/is a lot of it and it was heavy.  Late Wednesday it was raining here in St. Paul on top of all that snow.

First, it snowed and we cleared the snow and then it snowed overnight and we cleared the snow and then we got another few inches overnight and we cleared it.

The snow emergency routes are in good shape, walking anywhere is almost impossible and there is so much snow that we are running out of places to put it.

It was the 14th-highest total snowfall in Twin Cities snowfall records that go back to 1884. 15  inches fell at the airport. The 13th largest and most recent record-breaking snowfall was the thunder blizzard we had on April 13-15 2018 with 15.8 inches.

This week’s snowstorm was also the 4th largest January snowstorm.

Here are a couple of pictures I took of snow. It was beautiful on Wednesday. The blob in the foreground is my picnic table and as you can see I did manage to shovel a path to the grill. . . which I could put closer to the house.

Maybe the snow will help alleviate the drought.
