mississippi river, saint paul, winter

Another one from the archives. This year the Mississippi seems like it has been frozen over for most of the winter. And there’s a lot more snow.

Yesterday’s phenology:

Speaking of snow.. we got about 10 inches yesterday, mostly through the night. It started out heavy and wet, and ended up not so heavy, but when you shovel it (which, as the snowblower suddenly stopped snow blowing, I needed to do a bit of) when you shovel it, it’s the worst kind of snow, ┬áthe sort of snow that sticks to your shovel.
We have an awful lot of snow around here. The streets are slippery with snow, and visibility when driving is terrible, due to high piles of the stuff. I definitely should be skiing this winter, but I am not. But it is not too late!
