What a fantastic looking day! We might have reached 40F today but it wasn't as sunny and we're right back at the freezing point now. I was busy clearing last nights snow. Its funny how 40F at this time of year can feel so warm and make you feel like doing stuff outside.

We had about 4-5" Monday morning and are do for another 6" tomorrow, so we will be with you in clearing snow. Hope the blower makes it to spring as the drive disc is failing and wheels are rusted on, so I can't easily get to it to put one in. At least it survived long enough to move the piles back from the driveway, so when we shovel we have a place to put it. We try to keep it clear without driving on new snow and packing it, or we get huge packed ridges for 20' out from our north facing garage where no sun shines. Makes it really tough to get in and out of the garage.

We were up north in Grand Marais when it snowed in the Twin Cities Monday. This morning I measured 6" of new snow so we must have gotten more on the west side considering two days of melt. I can tell you shoveling old snow after two days is tougher than shoveling fresh snow.

Grand Marais had about 10" Monday. We snowshoed in that at Sweethearts Bluff next to the campground but stayed in town. Yesterday it was spectacular and we went up the Gunflint Trail to snowshoe. No, we stayed in the Harbor Inn and drove our Subaru Outback up there.

Our favorite campsite in the Grand Marais Campground that overlooks the harbor was a bit indisposed with snow Monday.



Tuesday at the George Washington Memorial Pines ski trails it was spectacular.

Well it was fun while it lasted. We are now due for 6-12" of new snow and then we are going to drop back down to below 0 F nights for the next 10 days or until we plan to depart the Twin Cities for some points warm if that exists. I see it is now snowing this 11 AM.

Times change We are in the 10" + area. 30-35 mph winds while snowing last night. Deck railing only shows half the depth because it all blew elsewhere (like the driveway). Now we are going to get another week with below zero lows.

We got about 7" on the west side of the Twin Cities. I measured 24" of accumulated snow. It hasn't been the snowiest winter but has been consistently cold with little snow melt. The Gunflint Trail in northern Minnesota now has nearly 4 feet of snow on the ground.

Here comes the Bobcat to plow our 400 foot driveway. It is 7 AM.



We were up early and ready for them as we had shoveled around the B and in front of the garage door so they don't have to get too close.



All plowed by 7:30 AM. This photo was taken at 8 AM back inside the house again.



I spent another 2 hours today clearing snow off the B. The first two inches was a slushy icy mix that had to be chopped at with a broom handle. The upper 5 inches or so could be broomed off or blown off with a leaf blower. So it was up and down on a ladder. If we blow this town and head south on March 1st it looks as if I won't have to do this again. Weather looks clear but extremely cold until then.
