Minnesota Snow Storm

Minnesota Snow Storm

So we had 17 inches of snow drop on us during the past two days and now we’re digging out. During the past 48 hours, MnDOT issued a weather advisory, telling people not to travel and they pulled their trucks from the road due to impassible conditions.

The New York Giants, on their way to Minnesota for a game against the Minnesota Vikings, were stranded in Kansas City, then the game scheduled for today, was postponed till Monday, then the Metrodome roof collapsed, forcing the league to move the game to Detroit’s Ford Field.

Here’s what the snow storm looked like from my perspective. Minnesota Snow Storm from David E. Erickson.

I’ve already uploaded hundreds of pictures to . I’m not saying they’re great, far from it. I know I’ve got a lot to learn. But it sure as hell is fun!

I guess now I need a photo blog.
