Every day, Scooter and I walk around the block regardless of weather. Our block is seven miles around and it is a rare day we stay home.
Today is one of those days.
Scooter does not understand.
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.
Just getting to the snowblower means digging through four foot drifts.
Our road didn’t look too bad. Until we encountered a six foot drift.
At least the sun is shining, but don’t be fooled. The wind is gusting up to 40 mph dropping the windchill to -15°F.
More winter scenes
It might be a good time to knock down the hornet nest in the milk house. I doubt they will be out and about but I am not sure I want to climb over drifts to get there.
And here are sun dogs from earlier this winter – just because.
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.
