Five years ago I’d shoveled out that cut through the snowmass only to have it blow closed again overnight. I gave up and headed to Florida…

DSC_1898This year after the second 8~10 inch snow this month: DSCF2177Doesn’t look like it, but the snowfall is similar to the above picture from five years ago. The baby John Deere tractor is a game changer, not only is the driveway cleared full width, but the snow piles and drifts have been pushed back enough that it won’t get blown closed by tonight’s forecast 30 MPH winds. After making light work of the driveway yesterday morning, Fawn Deere plowed out a couple hundred yards of county road to help free a semi and SUV stuck in the drifts.

So Minnesota winters don’t look so bad any more, and I’m in no big rush to get back to Florida… Though my landlady’s evictions and such just to jack up the lot rent are a factor too…
