Still Stranded, 20 Hours After The Storms End in Minot ND

Real estate Help Wanted, Minot ND

20 hours after the end of the storm I'm still stranded at home even though we live near the heart of the City and on a fairly important street. But of course the City got right out there and cleared the entire Roosevelt Park Zoo parking lot... even though it's closed for the winter.

 

I really don't mind being stranded at home, it's like the vacation I wouldn't take for Christmas but should. I can see another game of Monopoly coming on soon.

The Driveway

According to one news report last night we now have over 40" of snow this year (all in about 3 weeks). That is more than we usually get in a couple of years or more.

Our House 12272016

If we get any more it is going to become a challenge as to where to put it.

122721016 Street View

Because the snow is so blinding it's hard to see how narrow a path we have for a street and the plow made banks about 3-1/2 feet on either side of the path.

WOW Bob, that's too much snow for anyone. Looks beautiful in the pictures though, you can get tons of stuff done around your home though.

Bob,

Wow, that is a lot of snow.  You could always ship it to California and fill up some of the reservoirs.  A

I have been stranded in 14 inches of snow in Oklahoma City so this would be an absolute horror to me.

Hi Bob -  you more of a White Christmas than you bargained for.  I hope that your snow blower is in top condition.  You might need to get a plow for your car.  Stay warm.

Hi Bob "RealMan" Timm ,  We finally got rid of most of our snow today, but your video is a reminder of what is to come in the next couple of months for us.

Keep warm!

Bob "RealMan" Timm - Even though you and your son managed to do a lot of heavy snow removal, there's still a lot to go. You be safe Bob! Snow removal is hard work - I'm originally from Chicago and I know! I'll be thinking of you and I hope you aren't trapped inside too long.

I see you're finally moving about again. It's fun to be stuck inside, but not for too many days. Take it easy out there and here's hoping for a long, slow, melt.

I was getting a bit "stir crazy" Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD , not that anyone would notice from my regular crazy. You are spot on that we are hoping for a very slow melt this spring.

Yikes. It's silly that a zoo parking lot was cleaned, but your roads are not. I wonder if they were planning to dump the snow from where you are into the parking lot?

I hope by now your roads are in better shape!
