This is Ridiculous

I'm a hardy Minnesotan.
I've lived here all of my life.

I don't think I have ever before complained about winter.
(This is a hard thing to confess because complaining about winter is part and parcel of living in Minnesota.)

I love a good cold, hard, snowy, wintry,

The past few years, I've felt sort of jipped. (is that how you spell that word??)
We've had rather balmy winters; not a ton of snow, maybe not as cold, etc.

Well this year has been cold. Frigid cold.
And we've had snow. Lots of snow.

And I think winter began in November.
And here we are, a day away from April,

and we get this:A Blizzard!

the view from our front door
snow piled up at the front door
It is blustery and snowing like everything!
At least we're not dealing with a flood to top it off, like they are in Fargo/Moorhead.

We were supposed to have
Homeschool 4-H today, but Dennis looked out this morning and said,
"You're not going anywhere."

I have no objection.


  1. And, don't forget that we had a short summer before that with spring and summer getting a pretty late start!


  2. That's right! I remember Dennis calling it June-uary!
    What is it they say about the seasons in MN?
    1. Not Quite Winter
    2. Almost Winter
    3. Winter
    4. Still Winter
