I am super late getting this posted. Yesterday was a scheduled day off for school although it’s highly likely that school would have been released early due to the blizzard that rolled through. On the bright side…Mini-me took her knowledge test and got her learners permit yesterday. I let her drive a bit in a parking lot on our way home. It was crazy slippery already at 11am.
(fyi…this will be a photo heavy post)
Lets back up a bit….last week I was super excited about the Vikings playing for a spot in the Super Bowl. Yep…they lost. By a lot. It was almost as if they didn’t show up. Don’t get me wrong…I’m still a fan. Always a fan but I’m not going to lie it was disappointing.
Me circa 1976 sporting a Vikings Fan club button.
The game was so stressful to watch that I kept myself busy knitting Little Hats for Big Hearts
When I switched to crochet the pattern got away from me. Not really sure what this might end up as…certainly not a hat.

22) scenic…out for a drive at the start of the blizzard
Last night we waited and waited and waited for the plow to go through so we could clear the driveway. The snow just kept coming getting deeper and deeper. Finally we heard it come barreling down the street at about 8:30. The four of us suited up and began to dig out.
Fast forward to this morning…I get the call that school is delayed by 2 hours! Hooray! In the meantime Mr. G leaves for work. Then I get an email to district staff telling us that school is now closed for the day. The kids were screaming for joy and passing the news along to their friends since the automated call had not come through yet. The joy was lost a bit when they realized the chore we still had in front of us….moving a ton more snow.
The drifting sure looks pretty but makes crazy mounds of snow in other places.
My garden is in the deep snow.
The kids worked hard shoveling while I pulled the drifted snow off the roof.
The struggle was real. We got a foot (30 mm) of snow in total that drifted in crazy ways.
Since we were all tired and hungry I took the kids to breakfast. I had buckwheat pancakes. They were so good!! I was so hungry I almost forgot to snap my photo for T stands for Tuesday!
