Winter Storm from March 13, 2006
Here are a few photos of a recent storm that passed through here about 5 weeks ago. It was quite the storm, but for March in Minnesota, you can usually expect to get a good sized storm to finish off the winter season. I started out the day planning on going to work, but after sitting in traffic for almost two hours and moved about 300 feet, I decided I had to call in sick. These I took on my drive back to my home. This was an open field with the snow blowing across from right to left. I could hardly see the road ahead of me This photo is of the traffic I was running into. The traffic heads into downtown St Paul and from where this is taken is the first exit north of 494 on Highway 61. That's about a ten mile traffic jam into downtown. It took me a while to get off of the road and head back home as you can see in the photo on the exit ramp. This is on the other side of my drive way in my neighbors yard. In their back yard. Looking down my driveway. This one is awesome how the snow collected.
