    I notice the snow on the ground is deeper than the snow on the roof. Nasty business, that shovelling the roof.
    I'd be digging out my mailbox sooner, so service isn't interrupted!

    I think I would have left it lost so the bills couldn't get to me, especially the electric bill!

    My little sister is in MN, too. She said she almost got frostbite just holding the screen door open too long! She may or may not have been kidding. LOL

    You got a little bit more snow than us in Wi. I can see the top of my mailbox. The town just came through the other day and pushed it all back into my front yard. :) Love living in a small town.

    He must be a glutten for punishment - Iowa is bad too lol. So glad he takes it so well. It ooks like he did some pretty hard work just digging out his driveway!!! We had eight inches last week and are expecting 3-5 more today - My DH got me out for about an hour the other day-I dont walk well on regular pavement less alone snow. I was so proud of him for taking time to dig a path and help me to the car!! He actually took all my packages to po and did grocery shopping while I spent time in JoAnns lol Like I really needed more fabric lol He definitely gets a gold star cheryl :-D

    The people in Minnesota, are not only a hardy group of folks but they surely have some pioneer spirit in them to brave all the snow and cold!

    Doesn't that look familiar :)....What makes it more interesting is "our" mailbox in a snow bank and the door is open...it then becomes "Where is my mail" (yes, come spring everyone reading this would be surprised where we find that lost envelope)

    I'll take Iowa over Minnesota in the winter any time!! We may have deep snow from time to time but rarely that deep. Tho it has been known to happen. I do remember one winter when the snow banks on each side of the highways was higher than a bus. But it isn't usually that bad. I hate the ice storms more as that is when we lose power usually. Snow you can drive on but ice is much more dangerous especially black ice. One winter we had to walk on about 8" of packed snow all winter. I had to walk up town to pay the bills because it was easier than trying to get the car out.

    I don't mind driving on the ice here in town but I won't get out on the roads on it.
