Last week we had a thaw with temps reaching 50+ degrees. Kids were wearing shorts while waiting for their schools buses and spring was in the air. But this is Minnesota, and it is February.
Winter has returned!
It started yesterday about noon and continued all day. It was windy , cold, and
I shoveled last night and cleared out my driveway and sidewalk. So I was a bit surprised when I stepped out of my door this AM into another 6 inches of snow! YIKES. But 6 inches is only an inconvenience in my part of the world. So I pulled out of my driveway and promptly got stuck in the snow in the street in front of my house.
Oh my. I kind of forgot that since I shoveled last night the snow in my driveway was a poor indicator of the snow on the street. The plow hasn't come by yet.
Fortunately I have been driving in this kind of weather all my life so with a little back an forth maneuvering and putting Drive into 2nd I was able to get back into my garage. I called work on my cell and left a message that I would be late.
After digging out my drive and side walk I went back inside to warm up only to discover that the director at work had left a message on my phone - no work today!
