Here's a lesson we learned today: Just because the snow stopped falling doesn't mean you have the right to drive on the roads.
You see we had a major blizzard yesterday.
Outside our apartment window.
But we figured that since the sun was shining today, we could just hop on the major highway and head up to the next town that's home to a cafe we discovered last week (more on the cafe in another post). We got there through blowing snow and drifts and had a scrumptious breakfast. But we learned that the roads were officially closed due to the blowing snow and that if you're caught driving, it could cost you about $1000.00. Ummm...oops. So, after breakfast we headed straight back home and are staying put until the authorities say "move!".
And apparently out here snow blowers are for namby-pambys.
This is what we saw shoveling some driveways...
They don't play around up here. They tackle the snow like nobody's business.
Oh, and the Metrodome collapsed. Oh noz!
