Earlier this week a much milder version of the blizzard that hit Chicago and the rest of the east coast swept through Minneapolis, dropping about 4 1/2 inches in Minneapolis. That's definitely enough to come up over your shoes and make sweeping off your car and delivering mail a pain.
It took us two days to get it shoveled. And the majority of that was thanks to our neighbor, who pushes her snow blower around the corner and over our sidewalks so she can get her sidewalk clean.
We may have lost this last snow battle, but we will win the winter war!
