The weather here in Minnesota sucks. Plain and simple. It has been a long, cold, snowy, icy mess of months. We are hardy stock. It is cold here in the winter but we don't let that stop us from living our lives. We have theater, music, a happening restaurant scene. We have 10,000 lakes we can ice fish on. Miles and miles of trails to snowmobile and cross country ski on.
But, we are through. It snowed in November and pretty much hasn't stopped. No one can park anywhere because there is so much snow, there is no where to put it. 2 lane roads are now a lane and a half at best. Snowbanks are so tall, you take your life in your hands when you try to turn onto a street because you can't see what is coming. We are SO over this winter.
People are now just staying indoors and hibernating. I've been reading blogs and shopping at the secondhand stores.
We have Savers here in Minnesota-I don't know if they are nationwide, just in the Midwest, or just here in MN. We had such nasty weather that the President's Day sale had to be extended a week and a half later. They had a deal for card holders for another day of 50% off clothes, shoes and something else I wasn't interested in. I scored pretty big. For myself I found 2 dresses, a skirt, 2 shirts, 2 sweaters, a blazer and 5 novels. For my daughter (the pregnant one), I found a pair of maternity jeans, a scrubs top and scrubs bottoms. For the baby, I found 5 onsies, a pair of jeans, a skirt, a sweater and 2 pairs of jammies.
