Two weeks ago I blogged that we had set an all time snowfall record for a year, EVER! Well it just keeps coming. I had really hoped to post several blogs about our community over the Holidays but frankly I've been doing a lot of bonding with my snow thrower. As you can see from the pictures above I've got plenty to do in my yard.. BUT what you don't see is that I also run over to my mother-in-laws and do hers and then I have a listing (or two) by elderly clients that I head over to and do theirs as well. In the summer I often mow the lawns (also at no charge) for my elderly clients).
The snow has been so heavy and frequent that yesterday the Minot Super Walmart closed (and still is) until they clear the roof of snow. Many business here are in fear of failing roofs as the weight of 5 feet of snow tests their strength. We have yet another storm warning for tomorrow.
There is still some fun to be had for those brave enough to venture out into this mess. Here is a picture of the snow tunnel/fort Tina (8) and I made yesterday when the temp jumped up to 28 degrees above zero.
In case you were thinking that I was joking about the temperature, guess again. We have had several weeks of subzero temperatures and last nights storm brought the subzero temps back again.
