Okay, so she really did the sidewalks, and my little lawn tractor with the snow blower wasn't up to the job, so I had to get the local construction company's huge front end loader to clear out our driveway down to the highway. The next picture shows a drift in our back yard that topped the six foot wooden fence....A real Minnesota blizzard here in Bluff Country. Its been a while......

Its been a while since we've had a real Minnesota blizzard here in the southeastern part of the state (Bluff Country). Maybe a decade or more. Yes, we've had sub zero temps and with very high winds on occasion, the "wind chill" drops out of sight. What has been missing are the big snowfalls that with the wind creates huge drifts that block the roads and pathways. Strangely, this winter's bad storms have passed us closely by to the north and the south. Now, take a look at what the aftermath of a blizzard looked like some time ago, shortly after we had just been married and Mrs. T was clearing the driveway. What a sweetheart!
