Seventeen Inches of Snow

On December 12, I complained about this.  We had a measly 2 inches of snow, but Minnesota had 17 inches resulting in the collapse of the Metrodome roof.

Notice the mailboxes are almost completely covered.  Wonder if the mail still gets delivered?  Probably.  They don’t even cancel school for snowy weather up there.

I have to say that the sky looks beautiful and clear in these pictures.  And I do love how picturesque the snow looks on the large pine trees.

Minnesota has some of the largest trees I have ever seen.  I made the trip up Interstate 35 from Dallas to Minnesota with my sister when she moved.  It was fascinating to watch the changes in vegetation as you drive.  The further north you go, the foliage and trees are greener and lusher and larger.

That being said, I do not like Winter or Winter weather so I do not visit my sister during the Winter months which means I don’t go to Minnesota from about October through April.  But I’m really missin’ her so I asked my husband if we could visit in January IF we have a warm spell.

That’s not likely.  Maybe we can both meet up in Arizona.  I have a sister there who complains about the weather when the temperature goes below 70°.  Perspective.  It’s all about perspective.
