Not Today, Scooter

Every day, Scooter and I walk around the block regardless of weather. Our block is sever miles around and it is a rare day we stay home.

Today is one of those days.

My wife thinks it is a great day to be outside too. She wants me to dig out the camper, so we can head for Port Aransas, Tx.

20190224_080335Just getting to the snowblower means digging through four foot drifts.

20190224_081555Our road didn’t look too bad. Until we encountered a six foot drift.

20190224_081703At least the sun is shining, but don’t be fooled. The wind is gusting up to 40 mph dropping the windchill to -15°F.

Update: No one is going to work this morning.  MNDOT has locked the blizzard gates and piled up snow to block the entrance ramps to I-90 and I-35 in our region.  It is strictly no-go.  The National Guard has been called up to rescue stranded drivers and assist in 911 calls.
