Minneapolis: the first (real) snow of the season

The Weather Channel is calling it Winter Storm Caesar.  Minnesotans just call it winter.  Whatever you want to call it, we had our first real snow of the season today.  I’m sure Western Minnesotans could put these pictures to shame, but this is the evolution of our patio between 9:30am and 5:30pm today:20121209-172359.jpg

It doesn’t look like much of a change between the last two pictures, but I guess when you pass six inches of snow it’s tough to consider two more inches much of a change.  I really enjoy the snow when I don’t have to drive anywhere.  After our first round of shoveling, I took a walk around our neighborhood to check out the lake and creek.  This is what I found on my walk:20121209-172631.jpg

20121209-172742.jpgI mostly wanted to see how the lake looked with our new snowfall.  I never bother to look at it until I realize it’s already frozen over.  I found some trees and branches struggling under the weight of the snow, as well as some ducks that looked very cold.  20121209-173101.jpg

  3. Beautiful pictures! I see you are using your new camera:)

  4. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
    penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
