Spent most of Saturday snowblowing driveways. Did mine and two neighbors twice. We must have had at least 18 inches in Woodbury. Drifting was just as much of a problem. Now it is the cold we get to deal with.

Definitely beautiful it you don't have to drive in it. The good news is that the snow removal in Minnesota is probably as good as it gets. In our neighborhood most of the roads were plowed twice on Saturday and by Sunday morning we were pretty much down to the asphalt and as close to 'curb-to-curb' as we will probably get all season. Most of the neighbors driveways were completely cleared by Sunday night.

Yeah, I live in NE Mpls and our street is plowed curb to curb, even the alley is pretty good. I figured it would take almost a week to get to this point.

On the other hand it took me 3 trips with a shovel to get the sidewalk and driveway clear!!! Every year I tell myself I don't need a snowblower... idiot!
