Homesick...But Not THAT Homesick!

Yes, it's true. I've been in Ohio for over a year now, but I definitely still get homesick for Minneapolis. However, after the weekend they had, I'm pretty pleased to be in Columbus! Sure, we got a few inches of snow today, but it's NOTHING compared to what has been going down in Minnesota over the past 48 hours. Our house that we are renting out got 21.5" inches of snow on Saturday.

Here are some photos my dad sent from their place:

He needed to shovel the snow off the deck (it gets heavy, so it can cause structural damage) but couldn't open the door. So, he had to crawl through the window in the living room. Ha! How crazy is that?! Even worse, the high there today was -6ºF. Yes. That's a negative sign. And no, it's not a typo.

This was the view from my backyard on Saturday:

I will never complain about living in Ohio again. ;)

To all my friends and family back in "Minne-snow-ta", I hope you're staying safe and warm! No need to out in that stuff...just grab a glass of wine, start a fire, and take some time to relax!

  1. I'd love that kind of snow just once in my life!

    My dad was telling me that in ND the lows were in the negative teens. Holy smokes!
