Last weekend we got nailed with the second of two back to back snowstorms. Schools and businesses closed. I worked though because hospitals of course never close.
When the clouds cleared and the sun warmed our roof the snow up there started to melt. This is the view from my window. Let me tell you, it felt like I was in winter's jail. Here we are only five days later, and the temperature is 45 degrees. Great sheets of ice and snow are sliding off the roof and crashing onto the patio. I drove downtown Minneapolis this morning to pick Art up for lunch. People downtown were soaking up the glorious weather, many walking about in shirtsleeves. I myself am doing the happy dance- winter is loosing it's tight grip. It will be a while yet, but spring IS coming to Minnesota!
