MSU- Mankato has called off tomorrow already, so have both MPLS and St Paul schools.

Maybe work will be open when my shift comes around (we shut down @ 3 today)

Man, I gotta see this. We got blasted pretty good not too long ago and schools shut down for 1 day, but that that is all. Pics anyone???? I really feel for you guys. It was so bad here some roads didn't get plowed for days and parking was pretty bad (no garage or driveway for me) but life went on as usual. I just cant get my head around weather that bad. I believe you, just cant imagine it.

Last night we had freezing rain after a bit of wet snow. My street was a sheet of ice. So what do I do being a true "Canadian"..........laced up the skates, grabed my hockey stick and went out for a skate up and down my street! 1 mile of a hockey rink, not bad eh?
