William's Blog...with a smile!


North Branch, Minnesota Blizzard!

North Branch, Mn April 14th.

This has bee one of the worst storms I have seen in my 19 years in my home.

We have had more snow but not the wind with it.

My home is protected by many trees so these photo's show how extreme this weather was.


My pole barn is 150 from the house.


The trees are just 100 feet from the house


Looking down the road, there is a yellow curve sign 250 feet away and not visible.


Looking the other way down the road I can see less than 300 feet.


Today, I got all the plowing done, now waiting for the next 5-6 inches for today!


And just to say again, this is in the protected area of the trees.   I can drive in most any weather, but even I would not have ventured out unless it was a direr emergency!

Unbelievable weather for mid April, William.  You guys don't seem to be catching much of a break.

For me that is just nuts. Anything below 80 is winter to me. Hope you get soemthing warmer soon.

Wow William born and raised in Minnesota and having lived on the west coast for so many years, I have forgotten this type of weather.
