We had a big storm coming in, that was supposed to start Tuesday and go through Thursday. 23 inches of snow predicted. As it turned out, the storm began very slowly, which was good, since I had a doctor’s visit scheduled. Anyway, most of the snow fell Wednesday night. Thursday morning I reported this on facebook:

The snow is still falling. A couple of suburbs to the south of us have reported 14 inches and 18 inches. The clinic we visited yesterday is closed today due to weather. The streets and sidewalks in our neighborhood have been plowed several times and are passable. The buses are running. Patrick looked out the window and saw a car sliding sideways down the street. So there are cars out… Not many…

A good storm, but not equal to the great Halloween Blizzard of 1991, which dumped two feet of snow on Halloween and another foot about a week later. The banks of snow lasted all winter and got icy. Climbing over them I thought, “I am too old for this.” But I am still in Minnesota.
