Minnesota Blizzard of 2010

It’s not often that the National Weather Service issues a blizzard warning, but this time it was warranted.  There was so much snow, the roof of the Metrodome collapsed (watch it happen here).  After a full day of snowing and high winds, Sunday December 12, 2010 looked like this from the garage at 9 AM (0 degrees).   Note that the plow has cleared the street and totally buried the mail box.  The spill over from the street is so large, it extends over the sidewalk.  [Click on the pictures for a bigger version].

This is what the front looked like.  The drifts are about three feet.

After about an hour, I was over heating so I switched to lighter jacket.  It took about 1.5 hours to get this far…

Give Sue’s recent remarks about my lamenting about the blizzard, here are some manly shots…

After two hours, the driveway and mailbox is cleared.  The sidewalk will have to wait for another day.
