Winter HAS arrived

Our weird weather continues--same extreme march of large systems that brought us the lowest barometer reading ever recorded in North America last October.  This time, we had temperatures low enough for snow and got a BIG blizzard.  It was enough to collapse the roof on the Metrodome in downtown Minneapolis.  And we got five more inches out here than they did.  16" (40 cm) predicted, 22"(56 cm) "measured" although with all the wind, it was hard to be accurate.

We are finally dug out, but we have already used up a lot of the space to put snow for a long winter.  This is me posing in front of the snowbank at the end of my sidewalk.  That pile is over 8' high.  And yes, it's snowing again.
