it was only supposed to be snow "showers" sometime on Sunday. So after a suddenly planned, rapid trip to Mpls. on Saturday with the trailer Gregoires loaned out to us, I awoke to this on Sunday morning. We left at 7am on Sat morning and returned at 11pm Sat. night driving back into that gusty North wind...taking us 5 hrs with this loaded trailer....When Richie got home from the Forum at 8 on Sunday morning, he tried to wake me to alert me about the snow outside...but I continued to snooze...not really believing him... how dumb was I when I looked outside my belongings were covered with snow... and yes, Ria - the little antique bench is going to be yours :-)... finally!
