It Was Only a Year Ago…

This was one year ago…


This is today…


The top video was taken January 18, 2011 – after a slight warm up in temps allowed me to get out and chisel away an almost 6 inch crust of hard packed snow off my driveway (link).  The driveway looked so good (cleared off in the middle of January) that I had to take a video – well, that and the almost four foot mounds of snow on the edges of the driveway.

Fast forward one year and two days.

The second video was taken January 20, 2012 – after a trifle of snow fell upon us.  As you can see in the video – you can still see GRASS in our lawn.  True Minnesotans are embarrassed by this winter. 

The good news is that I have heard that February may be a very snowy month for us.  Let’s hope it will make up for the lack of snow over the past two months…

Mother Nature, are you listening?
