    Well, here is the place to post your pics of the 2/28-3/2 Minnesota storm. We've had about 2.5 inches since about 4:30 p.m. These pics were taken at 8:15 p.m. The wind is really picking up too! Happy plowing everyone!

    Here are some storm update pics. I was out this morning clearing driveways, and we have about 4" on the ground, but we're gonna get hammered with up to 10" this afternoon-night, or maybe even more!:nod:

    It isn't too heavy, but it isn't powder either. The blower only plugged up at the end of the driveway where there was a puddle before the storm came.

    The storm just came onshore from Lake Superior here in Duluth. I'd go take a picture, but I don't want to take my camera out in that stuff! Fortunately the state DOT and the city have their plows out in full force and are doing their best to keep up. Hat's off to those guys!

    Well, MNdot closed a bunch of state highways tonight and pulled a lot of the plows off the roads. Gov. Pawlenty may call off school statewide tomorrow. I'll be out tomorrow morning cleaning the driveway, but for now just kicking back and eating some hot pizza!

    All of I-29 in South Dakota is closed. I-90 east from SIoux Falls, all 12 miles, is closed too.:help:

    Blizzard warning for the eastern part of the state. Just a blowing snow advisory here where I'm at.

    Duluth has the city plows back out now......with chains. Park Point is still closed. They're working on getting some big old school v-plows in (I'd love to see an Oshkosh or FWD) to bust up the drifts, but I don't think anyone that lives out there will be going anywhere. I currently cannot see my car. I can see a large snow drift where I parked it, however. The snow has tapered off and the winds are dying down so maybe people will be able to clear out as the day rolls on. I know the college is shut down and so is work today though so I have nothing to do but sit back and drink beer. Shoveling can wait. :drinkup:

    Here are the updated pics. Here is one with me clearing out the driveway. We have about 11" on the ground, but it's hard to tell with the wind blowing it around.
