Tsnownami 2010

Behold, the wonders of frozen Minnesnowda:


And my neighbor’s epic snow fort:


Update: And me, the next day, demonstrating the depth of the snow:


The pictures just don’t do it justice.

Oh, it’s supposed to be, like, negative a thousand degrees tomorrow, and the bus service and all cab companies are shut down (as well as the airport). Minnesota never closes anything for snow– this is pretty huge!

Update: The roof of the Vikings stadium, the Metrodome, collapsed under the weight of all the snow:

    Best weather report ever.

    Oh, Miss April, I am so glad I’m NOT in Minnesota (even though Mark Dayton will be governor in January).

    It’s raining today and the temperature will be in the 50s in New York. Granted, tomorrow (Monday) the temperature will go down to around 28 but no snow.

      I always thought New York got as much snow as we did here, but now, looking at an actual map… I see you’re a bit more southern than Minnesota is.

      Weather in the 50’s sounds delightful right now.

    We do get some snow in New York but usually it’s nothing like snow in Minnesota and the Upper Midwest. We had a blizzard this past January but those are rare.

    I just heard on All Things Considered that the storm is being called SnowMyGod.

    I wrote the reply above and then thought about upstate New York which does get lots and lots of snow. Buffalo, Syracuse and other upstate cities and all the cities on the Canadian border and on the Great Lakes get much more snow than New York City proper.

    Hey April. Here in North MPLS, loving it! Cars stuck in the alley, cars stuck at the intersections, wonderful! LMAO. They know their car doesn’t go through snow, but they drive anyway. Head-desk.
    My sister was saying what a bunch of babies the football players were for re-scheduling the game and I told her about the dome and she thought I was kidding at first. I suppose they will get their new stadium now.

      What were they thinking in the first place with an inflatable roof on something like that? Next time it will be concrete.

    Welcome to a warmer planet. It takes a lot of heat to pick up so much moisture. It’s not cnsolation, but her in Seattle we are getting drenching rain and warmer than normal temps. That is bound to change soon. January is expected to be a deep freeze, so that suggests some relief for you guys.
