Default 10 day forecast for central MN

We just got what looks like about 4 inches last night, it'* snowing now and the forecast shows no mercy until 10 days out..... just after a week of nice temps and roads that were just a little bit salty. I can't drive anywhere -my front tires are worn beyond the wear bars, and the Bridgestone Potenza'* I have ARE NOT going to work in the snow... I am kinda stuck ATM. Not good considering I have a appointment at 6:30 PM tonight with the lady, 30 miles away.

No worries here,had my snow moving crew ( the kids ) make a path out the driveway and the potenza'* did pretty well considering,no complaints here.

Took the kids to work and back without a hitch,can't say the same for some of the female drivers out there today.... :P

I do miss my old 4x4 suburban w/ 4 in lift and 35"'* on days like these... :(

I found out that 99 SSEi'* with completely bald 235/55/16'* goes through snow alot better than 2001 SSEi'* with good tread on 235/55/17'*. Ashley got stuck driving across Alexandria last night 5 times.... my 99 ......was a tank.... nothing could stop it... not even another 5 inches (on top of the prior 6 inches) that had come down on her unplowed apartment parking lot when I left there at 3:30 AM this morning.......
Drove home and I was the only vehicle on I-94 which had a lot of blowing and drifting. Fun drive..... forgot to check my gas guage though and got REALLY LUCKY -ran out of gas 2 blocks from home this morning. I could have been really screwed if I had went in the ditch on the way home from Alexandria.

I got a "parking outside the lines" ticket in a ramp in downtown mankato last night for $5.

I'm at the parents now in the cities, and the roads were just moist on the way here. Had one spot on 169 where the fast lane wasn't completely cleared near the shoulder, but it was ok.
