After a few weeks in Tucson, necessity called me back to Minnesota for four days of the worst possible January weather. 

Quite a shock! This must be the worst winter in the northland since 1997. The snow banks are unbelievable. The talk in the cafe is of flooding even though March, which can be the snowiest month, isn't even the next page on the calendar. 


Doom and gloom.
