It’s snowing again.  If it doesn’t move it gets covered by snow.

Snowing again

I guess it shouldn’t be such a shock, it is after all Minnesnowta and it is winter, but this is getting to be a bit much.  Some areas of southwestern Minnesota, northwest Iowa and eastern South Dakota could have over 10 inches before this storm is done tonight.

So far we don’t have much wind.  Out here in the prairie that is the true devil in the weather details.  Ten inches of soft fluffy snow is really kind of beautiful.  When the wind whips it around it gets to be deadly stuff.

For those of you not from Minnesnowta, don’t believe the hype that we have 9 months of winter and 3 months of tough sledding.  Yes, it can snow as early as September, and as late as June, but really our weather is not a lot different than Chicago, Boston or New York.  We may get a few “wild hair” storms, but snow rarely comes to stay before December and is gone by April.

Here’s the real kicker, we have the equipment to move the snow we get, fast.  When folks from a warmer climate get an inch of snow, they are traumatized, we get 10 inches and it has been moved out of the way of commerce the next morning.

So welcome to Minnesnowta folks.  Come visit our lakes, forests and wonderful cities.  We have something fun for you to do any month of the year.  However, if you cannot handle a little snow in the winter, just send your money.
