“Well, you got what you wanted,” my husband said as he stomped the snow off his feet from shoveling our back deck. Over the past 24 hours, we got a good coating of ice (not what I wanted!) followed by about 4 inches of snow, according to our shoveling estimates. Northfield seems to have picked up more than the Twin Cities, which is fine by me, as we at last have snow on the gardens.

The ice formations were pretty last night, but the sidewalks and roads were more than a little treacherous. It’s good to have snow — we’ve had a brown winter long enough!
