yup that look.
next question "how much snow is up there?" well normally there is a good amount of snow, like the year before we left MN to move to Missoura.
that my friends would be "the beast" aka Ry' guy's wheels. This photo can be misleading. This year for Christmas and there was NO SNOW and it was 65 and Sunny Christmas Day. go figure.
I think the most amazing thing about the Twin Cities is on most years, we have all four seasons. We enjoy all those seasons with different events and festivals.
some people (not me) like to fish. ish.
we get snow. In mid-March during the State Basketball Tournament we get (hopefully) the last dumping of snow. the calendar could say March 21st and the snow keeps falling.
we start cleaning out our house and garage for some of the best garage-saling this side of the Mississippi.
Practice begins for Summer sports leagues. Let me tell you its no fun playing softball with snowflakes falling.
we book our camping reservations at one of the 74 state parks for Memorial Day weekend.
as much as I like Target Field, I must tell you now that I am a Boston RedSox fan. (sorry Ry-guy)
Summer season makes up for the massive amounts of snow we receive in the other three seasons. The large snow fall makes our Lakes, (over 10,000 of them) full for boating, tubing, jet-skiing, fishing, swimming, viewing of fireworks and drankin'.
We head up to our Cabins and enjoy the great outdoors.
We camp in those great State Parks we have.
We attend numerous County Fairs, City Festivals, Art Walks, Outdoor music concerts, Movies in the park, dinner and drinks on one of the many rooftop patios in the heart of the city.
AND FIREWORKS, lots of FIREWORKS
We get our belly ready to enjoy the feast at the Great Minnesota Get Together, otherwise known as the State Fair.
For many the State Fair is the unofficial end to Summer. Parents and Kids start getting ready to head back to school.
I will come back next week to share what we do to get us through Fall and (what can be) the long Winter.
