This is how Twitter tells me winter has arrived.











Yes, that is ten, count 'em, TEN! screens of tweets from the MN Department of Transportation warning about road conditions. I like to subscribe to their feed so I can feel smug when I don't have to go anywhere or fight rush hour traffic.

And here is how it looked outside shortly after the above road warnings.

    It is pretty as long as you don’t have to go anywhere. I’m glad MnDOT is keeping you completely informed, as opposed to just one tweet, “most roads in the area are partially covered with mixed snow ice or slush”!

    Because clearly, a single message of “Yo. Look out the window. You know what to do.” wouldn’t justify the tax dollars spent…

    11.8 inches. Do I win? There’s more to the south, peaking at my ex’s house. He won’t pay for plowing. (Reasons why I left #?)
    I don’t think the city had their act together, because the last time I was out (more than 24 hours ago), Main Street was already sporting a half-inch of compacted slush. (Last year they ran out of money and quit plowing on weekends, no matter how much snow.) Yippee! Winter’s gonna suck again!
    I think I’m going to invest in Yaktrax. If I can get to the store.

    11.8 inches beats us. We got about 6-7 inches. 
    Do get Yak Trax. They have saved my butt many times. If you look hard you can find glow-in-the-dark ones.

    Gorgeous. From here, at least. The icicles on the grill are particularly pretty.
