    Mount Eden Prairie

    There's a pile of snow cleared in a Target parking lot here in the Twin Cities it has been named Mount Eden Prairie. It's also been called Mount Target and one Minnesota woman painted a picture of Minnesota's most famous mound of snow. Experts think it'll stick around until mid May. I can believe that. I worked at a manufacturing plant that was over a mile long with an almost equally long parking lot so they had quite the snow piles which wouldn't disappear until May or even the first part of June. Yesterday it got up into upper 30s here in the Twin Cities so there was quite a bit of snow melting. It's 43 right now so probably a bit more disappeared today.
  2. Earlier this week forecasters were saying that we could be seeing a major winter storm later this week here in Minnesota but now it looks like the heavier stuff will go south of us and be down in Iowa again. Before today it looked like up here in the Twins we were going to be seeing some weather and I think they had a winter storm watch/warning before but they slid back to winter weather advisory for Thursday into Friday. It was snowing after work today but when I went out it was melting as soon as it hit the pavement so that's a good sign spring is getting closer. I'm ready to be done with winter so I can head out on the two wheeled money sink again.
  3. The weather had pretty much passed through by 2:00pm today and it started to clear up. According to the non-sharpiefied NWS where I am in the Twin Cities had about 13 inches of snow total, give or take. I'm glad I decided to wait until tomorrow before I go down for the various family parties this weekend. Even though the weather has pretty much gone through that's more time for the roads to get better. Hopefully it'll be quiet for a while now. Here's a few more photos from this afternoon.

    Yeah We're In It Now

    Winter Storm Olive has been through the Twin Cities area. It started yesterday afternoon and by late afternoon it was coming down pretty good. Looks like we'll be getting 10 to 16 inches of snow by tomorrow evening. Here's a few photos I took last night and this morning. I think I'll be staying home today and not doing too much.
  5. Dubuque had the largest amount of snow to fall in a single day in over 8 years yesterday. Before that the last time Dubuque received that much snow in a single day was on Feb 1, 2015 when ten inches fell. That was also the last time Dubuque had double digit snow fall. We used to get those on a semi-annual basis but not in recent years. It's supposed to be a bit quieter this weekend and warmer too so I don't think that snow will hang around too long. Even up here in the Twin Cities we've had a bunch of snow melting lately due to the warmer temperatures.

    Dubuque Really Got Hit

    Dubuque got a bit more snow than I expected today. There's a winter storm warning until 6pm this evening. Of course we're getting to the point in the year whatever does fall doesn't stay too long. It's supposed to be up in the 40s for several days starting this weekend.
  7. Right now the local news sources are saying there will be about 3 to 6 inches of snow, with a winter storm warning hitting parts of Eastern Iowa. For once it looks like we're not getting hit up north by this same storm, that we'll be north of the storm. Right now they're just saying it'll be cloudy but we'll have to see how it all turns out here in the Twin Cities. It was up in the mid 40s today so I did toy with getting my bike out for some riding today. Maybe closer to spring I'll be getting it out again. I hope I can locate my GoPro soon so I can start in on the GoPro time lapse videos when it comes time to start riding again. I'm supposed to go see a new neurologist tomorrow. I hope she understands that any suggestions that I not ride bike anymore will be met with a strong fornicate you lady. I'd rather go on my bike than sitting around at home waiting for the end as too many medical "professionals" want these days and get mad when I exercise any independence.
  8. It's shaping up to be an active weather week here in the Midwest. On Monday two tornadoes were reported in eastern Iowa. This was the first time in over 50 years that there had been tornadoes in Iowa in January. And now it looks like Iowa is going to be getting a snowstorm Wednesday into Thursday this week. And it looks like up here in Minnesota we'll be seeing some more snow from the same storm. It rained most of the day yesterday but we have enough snow on the ground that the ground is still covered up here. It did have the effect of washing parking lots clear so people can once again see the lines in parking lots and don't have excuses for midwest parking jobs anymore.
  9. Still snowing up here today. Originally we were supposed to have an in office day today so we'd be able to have a team meeting but they decided to let us all work from home today. Supposed to keep snowing all day today into tomorrow. Between today and tonight we could get about another six inches of snow. Here's another view from my patio... I'm ready for spring now.

    Winter Storm Update

    It's snowing out pretty good right now. The NWS is saying we're going to get about 4 to 7 inches of snow over the next day or so. According to the DOT the roads in the Twin Cities have some light snow on them but the roads are covered with snow and ice south of the metro. Pretty much sitting at home today and tomorrow and not doing too much. Might walk over to the grocery store later today to get a few things but it's just a day to sit at home and just relax.
  11. Looks like we're in for a few days of it now. It looks like I'm right at the freezing rain/heavy snow border here in the Twin Cities. I got back to Minneapolis just as the weather was starting to hit today. Glad I got back when I did.

    After Part One

    Well we survived the first part of the storm. It's currently -8 here in Minneapolis. The sun is out right now but the snow is still blowing around. Things are still pretty dicey out there right now and forecasters are saying out in the country there will be whiteout conditions later today and tomorrow. Still planning to head back to Iowa Saturday though. Just going to give myself a lot of extra time to get there.

    Winter Storm Elliott

    Over the past week we've had several inches of snow. It cleared up Sunday but the temperature dropped like a rock these past few days. And we - along with most of the rest of the upper Midwest - are also getting hammered. Right now one of the local stations is saying we'll get 4 to 8 more inches of snow Plus blowing snow tomorrow and Friday. Ugh. It's been snowing pretty steady over the course of the day. This a photo I took by Target Center leaving work today. If the forecast stays as planned I'll be heading back to Iowa on Christmas Eve. I wish if we had to get hit by bad weather instead of during the week it would've hit on Christmas or next week. At least living in the condo we have someone to clean off the sidewalks, entrance walk, and drive way.
  14. Last week when I was down in Iowa the snow pretty much melted up here in the Twin Cities. Well we got it all back today. More winter fun in the spoiler. Of course today the electric company had a scheduled outage in my neighborhood and my power was supposed to be down from 10 to 2 today. So I went in to the office. I have no idea if the outage went off as scheduled or if they're going to do it again tomorrow. We're under a winter storm warning until 9pm. My coworker measured about 4 inches of snow earlier and I saw something on the non-sharpie NWS site where someone reported 8.5 inches of snow. In a word. UGH.
  15. 47of74

    Yeah It's Snowing

    It was snowing most of the night so the ground was covered this morning. The local NBC station is saying probably 1 to 3 inches throughout Minnesota with about two inches in the Twin Cities. It's not going to be especially heavy but then you got all those idiots out there who forgot how to drive in winter weather.
  16. Yeah, looks like winter is coming to the upper Midwest. Fornicate. Looks like North Dakota is getting the brunt but winter is also hitting Montana, South Dakota, and parts of northwest Minnesota. One of my FB friends from law school lives in SW Minnesota so I got a message out to her asking how the weather is out there. I'm not ready for winter yet. Ugh,
  17. Two years ago today Iowa got hit by a derecho Yeah it got really rainy and windy up by Dubuque but there wasn't any damage at the farm. Nor did we lose power. Others in the area weren't quite as lucky. To say nothing of areas like Cedar Rapids or other parts of Iowa that got really hard. And it was two years ago today that I learned that there was a weather phenomena called derecho.

    A Hot One in the Midwest

    Yeah, it's nice and hot up here in the Midwest. Right now in Minnesota it's coming up on 8:00pm and it's still in the upper 90s. It's actually warmer here in Minnesota right now than it is in Iowa. It's supposed to be a bit cooler tomorrow, then it looks like temps will be up in the 90s until Saturday when it's going to be about 78. Last night I glanced at my Lenovo alarm clock a couple times and it was the middle of the night and it was still in the high 80s. Honest truth is I'd rather have the hot weather than the freezing cold that we had here when I moved up here.
  19. Supposed to be a good hot one in the upper Midwest tomorrow. Here in Minneapolis it's supposed to be up close to 100 tomorrow. In Iowa the various cities are opening up cooling centers and are advising residents to be careful about the heat. One of the local stations asked how well prepared the Minnesota power grid is for the heat. In other words Minnesota won't be as fornicated as Abattoir land was or is when extreme weather hits the power grid.

    Is this spring?

    When I lived in Iowa the joke was that one wanted to experience all four seasons in one week they just had to live in Iowa for a while. Sooner or later they would have such a week. Seems to be the case up here in Minnesota as well. After a stretch with with highs in the 70s to 80s even up as high as 90 it's been fairly cool out the past few days. Supposed to warm up again over the week and be up around 80 by this weekend. So far the plant collection seems to be tolerating the cold snap fairly well. If it was getting too much colder I'd bring them inside or cover them up. I had to turn the heat back on this morning because the place finally got cold enough to need the heat on for a while. I'm not my aunt or uncle who would keep the home in the mid 60s and where sweaters at home when it's cold out. I have been wearing all my heavier long sleeved stuff lately just because once it warms up again I probably won't need them again for a few months.

    Haboob Hit The Midwest

    There was an intense dust storm that moved through the Upper Midwest (IA, SD, NE, and MN) Thursday. And there is actually a name for what happened too. The NWS said they can occur anywhere but usually occur in the Southwest.

    More Spring Weather "Fun"

    Xcel is still out cleaning things up and more bad weather is expected this evening. They had said earlier that Washburn and 55th had been blocked. The neighbor's shelter tent that just about went flying off last week during a storm was ruined. She said it got tipped right over the fence in the wind. Otherwise she said there was no other damage and I didn't see any other damage. Had a couple co-workers that had to make alternate arrangements for working today due to power and/or internet being out at home. Right now it's nice and sunny out but who knows how long that will last. It is nice to be able to have the window open at home now even with all the airliners on final approach.

    Meanwhile in Minneapolis

    Yeah we got hit up in the Twin Cities this evening; I got home to find the joint still intact and with electrical power so I'm relieved.
  24. It got up into the 80s yesterday. We had some storms though and some hail. Glad my vehicle was in its parking spot in the garage when the storms came through. For the rest of this week we're supposed to see lows in the upper 50s to highs close to 90 with some storms in the mix. Got the windows wide open now even though I live under a final approach for MSP.
  25. Spring may finally be arriving up here. It got up above 70 today. And not only are yards turning green, but various plants are finally starting to bud as well. Once trees and other plants start budding full leaves are not too far off. I was able to go out today without a jacket and felt fine. Supposed to be nice, warm, and sunny up here in Minneapolis tomorrow. Sister and brother-in-law picked a good weekend to visit. We’re planning to go see the Twins tomorrow.
