This Just In....

Minnesota snow storms are still possible in late February.


Our village isn't on this list but you can draw a straight geographical line between Stockholm (WI) and Goodhue and the tallies on this chart agree with what my tall over boots measured mid-day and it kept blowing/snowing all day.


There's always an "edge" to a storm track but this one was dramatic; the delineation between the have a lots and the have not's was narrow and sharp.




Don't know where we'd have been without the (former) Redding, California Public Utility Plow Truck.


Last Sunday I put ~50 very carefree miles on the bike ......tomorrow I'll be comfortably reading about 1870's steamboats on the Upper Mississippi

  1. That's terrible... (translation: Better you than me!)

    Enjoy the steamboat books.

    1. Richard, we got through it! I did a quick job that evening while it was still snowing and blowing, got the bulk of it then but it was a horrible job. Counting on the 15 degrees predicted on Saturday morning, our soft base was then solid enough. I think we won, at least so far.

      I'm really enjoying the book, it's well done, so much of it here on the upper river. Surprised I hadn't been familiar with it.

    1. Dom, it will be nicer when there's just a few struggling piles left. We have to keep reminding ourselves that we honestly have 10 more potential weeks of this.

  3. Sorry that you got it, but very happy it didn't come this far north, hate pushing snow that's on top of soft dirt and mud

    1. rmo, I think that we've been on the right side of this storm's rough NE vector more than once already this season. It was probably our turn.

  4. Snow does look better than mud to me... just saying.

    1. Sonja, as far as it goes, you are correct. Now if we could get the snow not to make MORE mud. I think we're going to be OK.

  5. Wow, good thing you got that ride in when the sun was shining. The snow always looks so pretty when it is fresh though.

    1. Brandy, pretty it certainly is and I'll admit it. Green will return soon enough and the way things are going, it will be here before I'm quite ready for it.
