The Morning After

Up the road in Minneapolis, the Metrodome's roof collapsed. No NFL tomorrow night for the Vikings and the Giants- at least not on the Vikes home field.

Around here we have anywhere from 18 - 25" of snow and the temps are now dropping faster than, well, temps in the Arctic. This was a record storm- the greatest 1-day precipitation. It's in the top 5 of snowfall totals. Think about that: Only, at most, four other times has there been this much snow in one storm. In over 100 years.

Anyway, enough weather geekiness. Time for some pictures. These are just out my windows.

Looking north. Note the center of pic (see below left) and drifts on right (see below right)

Working hard at removal.

This one may take a while.
