Yeah, we got some snow yesterday.
The low pressure system to our south just sat and wrapped a band of heavy snow right over the twin cities all day. All. Day. And the winds turned it into a whiteout.
It wasn’t quite a blizzard, but close. And we ended up with about a foot of snow. It was enough to close the airport (drifting snow) and to make roads just terrible. Some school buses were still working at 7 pm to get kinds home.
But you know who didn’t mind so much?
Man was I glad to have a high profile, 4WD Armageddon machine last night. I barely noticed the snow!
Granted my commute is pretty short and I can cut around massive traffic snarls by taking side streets, but nothing was plowed where I drove. Nothing.
And the FJ performed like a champ! (Even tho he doesn’t have an official name yet, I’ve nicknamed him Moose). Just reinforcing my love of my ridiculously impractical vehicle.
So now we dig out. And continue preparations for the Super Bowl.
