    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. Here in the Twin Cities we broke the 80" marker for total snowfall, making it the 8th snowiest season on record. The most the Twin Cities received on record was 98.6" in the 1983/84 season. I hope that we're done with snow for the season but it would not surprise me at all if we weren't. Both Iowa and Minnesota have had some nasty winter storms in April. The Twin Cities could move up one or maybe even two more spots in amount received even if we just get as much as they're predicting this Friday. It looks like we're going to be getting up into the 40s tomorrow as well as next week. And in some good news, spring arrives Monday!
  3. 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.

    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. Looks like we'll be getting some more weather up here in Minnesota. I guess it's payback for missing out on the storm that hit Iowa a couple weeks ago. Various sources are saying we might get as much as two feet of snow. Of course it depends who one listens to. This is the joke that we all mention when the winter storms come in... God only knows how much we'll get now. I think even just yesterday they were saying maybe an inch in the metro and light snow at most in Iowa - and the heavy stuff would hit up in northern Minnesota. But it looks like they're thinking it'll head further south now and even get in to Iowa now. I was going to head down to Iowa later Thursday afternoon but I think now I'll probably wait until Friday. Take a 1/2 day and head down in the afternoon. I think tomorrow or Wednesday morning I'll make a final decision. I'm hoping that when I go down in April for Easter and niece birthdays weather isn't a factor. And of course since all the roads and trails will be covered again it means an end to bike riding for a few weeks. At least I got some mileage in this month.
  6. 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.
  8. 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.
  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. 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,
  16. It’s been cooler up here these past few days. And now we have a frost alert coming Well my plants are pretty much done for so I don’t have to worry about that now. I hope it stays decent for a while yet Leaves have definitely started turning up here and I’m having to wear thicker jackets if I rode in the morning or after work. I still need to get a thicker riding coat as I had to throw my old one out last April.
  17. And I don't mean hammered as in getting drunk either. NWS is expecting about a foot of snow around here. Right now it's not doing much of anything out. Just cold and windy. It'll be a good day to stay in tomorrow and just camp out at home.

    Cold weather on tap

    Yeah it's supposed to be really cold here in the upper midwest over the next few days. For the Twin Cities the NWS is saying mid 30s tomorrow before the temp drops down close to zero Wednesday and Thursday. Brrrrr

    Another January Snowstorm

    Had some snow today up in the Twin Cities. Iowa also had a bit of snow today as well with eastern Iowa getting about to 1 to 6 inches of snow. I didn't have any trouble getting to or from work today even with the weather hitting the fan. Supposed to be clear out tomorrow but it a bit colder. Depending on what the mortgage and realtor say tomorrow might go looking at some more places tomorrow. Regardless I'm going to try to sleep in a bit tomorrow morning.
  20. We're in the process of digging ourselves out of the snow. Dad said we had a little over four inches at the farm yesterday. Looks like a lot of places here in Iowa did get that six inches the weatherman promised Friday night. Couple spots even got close to 8 inches. Brother backed out at the last minute on taking me to church this morning so mom did. Which caused issues cause they wanted to go to their own church at the same time. Mom wound up taking me and dad met her at their church at 10. I don't know that I would have gone otherwise but this is my last Sunday as a regular member of the church and I said I wanted to serve one more time at the altar. I had been there about eight years. There was only 12 of us at church today with most people backing out due to the weather. The roads are getting better but still kind of covered. I walked to a brewery after church and it wasn't too bad. It was just about one mile. Mostly flat and even a bit downhill. Buildings acted as windblocks and I was layered up so I didn't freeze too bad. It's only 10f as I write this. Brrr....
  21. It started snowing shortly before 10am central here. By noon we had 2.5 inches of snow on the ground and it's still coming down pretty good. There's a heavy band of snow moving through eastern Iowa right now. We'll probably have four inches by the time it's over later today. Of course Iowa drivers can't go more than a few months without forgetting how to drive in winter weather. Including this moron was was clocked going 111 mph this morning.
  22. It's supposed to get down into the mid 20s for lows over the next few days with highs only in the mid 40s. Finally pulled the window unit out of my room at home this evening, I think I won't need it anymore for a few months. It's supposed to be nicer this weekend so a bike ride into town to go to church may be in order and have my brother bring my car in with the bike rack to give me a ride home then.

    It's Not Over Yet

    Iowa is about to get hit with the winter storm that hit the Rockies not too long ago. Right now it looks like we're getting several inches of snow over the next couple days. I cut my job interview trip short and started to head back home, I'll have to do the interview on zoom. I was looking forward to meeting my potential new employer in person and checking out the town too. Ugh. Here in the upper Midwest it always seems like winter has one last blast before giving up and letting spring come in full time. In 2018 when I was in Minnesota for school we got hit by a blizzard in April which delayed me getting home for a day. Two weeks later I was mowing the lawn at home.

    How cold is it?

    How cold is it here in Iowa? Cold enough I'm now getting messages saying hey plug in your car if you want it to start next time... Yeah, you know it's cold when you start getting those messages from GM.
  25. Yeah it's quite cold here in Iowa. The weather service says it's -8 here now. That's before wind chill. With the wind child it feels like -28 out. It's so cold out I'm getting alerts from GM that the cold might immobilize my vehicle if it's not plugged in. I wish I could escape to a warm climate right now.
