A day late...

It snowed. A lot. A whole lot. We lost power in East St. Paul twice early this morning because of the snow. I went out and started shoveling at 6:30 AM so my wife could get her car out of the garage, down the alley and to work. By 7:30 I had cleared from one end to the other, but during that hour another couple of inches fell on what I had just cleaned. I went in and had breakfast, and by the time we came back out to leave at 8:30 there was 5+ inches now covering what had been my clean driveway. The drive to campus that usually takes me 40 minutes on a Monday morning took an hour and 20 minutes. I passed cars, trucks, Semi's and Busses in the ditch.

The funny thing is, we've been planning on buying a snowblower with the money from our wedding. We've been waiting for the Spring sales. I think we were a day late.

That's usually the way it happens though!
