These are pics of my lovely hometown of Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota. The top photo is of the "Spoonbridge and Cherry" sculpture in the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, which has become one of our most famous landmarks. The bottom pic is of one of our wonderful urban lakes in the fall (I'm guessing Lake Calhoun, though I'm not sure). I'll try to post some more later.

Well, there's not any storms on the immediate horizon, but it was just weird this year. It was very warm (try 20 degrees above normal!) into the beginning of November. Then in the course of 4 days, the temps dropped into the 30's, it snowed 8 inches, and it's been nothing but cold and snow ever since. We've had at least a little bit of snow practically every day since then. We've also gotten at least four big storms this winter, including an ice storm... VERY unusual for around here. It's also been running colder than average this winter, and if you know anything about Minnesota weather, you know that the winters are always cold, so colder than average is really bad!

 

My dad and stepmom and I have had SO much shoveling to do this year! This winter has been enough to convince me that I NEVER want to own my own house! A condo or townhome would be OK, but only if the owners' association hires someone else to do the snow removal.
