It's a good old fashioned MN blizzard. A wedding has been canceled. A birthday party postponed. And our church has already called off services for tomorrow. The plows in my sister's county have been called off the roads and our landlady's mail was delivered by the plow. I have friends returning from Mexico today, and the Minneapolis airport has closed.
We can barely see the forms of trees near the barn against the white of the swirling snow and only one telephone pole on our 1/4 mile driveway is visible.
The house shudders with the force of the wind, but we are warm and cozy.
