I'm sure most of you think this sucks but I'm kind of looking forward to it. 20 plus inches of snow, 50mph winds.. It will be gone in a week. They are talking 60's next week so I say ... "bring it on" Who's going to shoot it? Might be a good contest? (Best Blizzard Photo)? All that enter must buy the winner a dinner and a beverage? Who's in?

If I wasn't suppose to be driving to Minneapolis, I'd be 100% pro blizzard. I've been waiting all winter for one since I managed to not go out and shoot after the thunderblizzard.
admin
Is it 20 inches of snow now? Le sigh.

I'm in for the Best Blizzard Photo contest. I'm not a cheap dinner date, just an FYI. ;-)

it's weather like this that makes me sooooooooooo glad to be leaving mn in the near future

anyways...a blizzard photo contest would be a cool idea.

hard to find a dairy queen that's actually open this time of year though...

I thought the one on Central Entrance was? There's your strange juxtaposition; eating a Blizzard in a Blizzard!

Wowza.. i cant wait to see what you guys get.. I just started snowing here.. Derek is stocking up on firewood ( out main way of heating)
admin
I went, I froze, I came home. No idea if I have anything worthy on my camera, it was a tad hard to shoot with 50mph winds blowing at me!

I made it out to Wisconsin Point with my camera and videocam around 5pm this afternoon for about an hour. It was crazy. If I didn't stand with one foot in front of the other, into the wind, it blew me a step backwards every once in a while. Fantastic!

Northland's Newcenter's YouNews TV is gonna make me a star... =^)

Hey don't you guys have a Coney Island shop down there? If so, I have tomorrow off, something about a snow storm....sounds like a good reason to go outside and play. On the way home tonight the power was off for at least twenty miles of highway, we stopped at a bar and they were burning candles for light.

Hey, northshorehiker, did I see you at WI point? Did you go down where the lighthouse was?
Working on the photos now, but it was awesome!

i work in St. Luke's Hospital's ER and so we're always open. boo. i had to shovel out and drive here in my little Kia Spectra at 6am, it was a little nerve racking. So far out of 13 staff members of my department that should be here at this hour, only 4 of us have.

Been a bad day here too. broke the belt on my JD Snowblower, then proceeded to bury my 4wd, 3/4's the way down the driveway in a four foot snow drift. Right now, my wife is making ice cream (weekly thing) I'll post my pictures from the weekend Sunday or Monday after I dig the truck out of the snow drift. :?)

Sounds like I picked a great week to vacation.

I went to the beach on park point, I had to walk backwards because it was like a sand blaster out there. The water was about a foot from the end of the beach, when I saw it. To bad of conditions for photos.

i wanted to go downtown and see stuff this morning, but my car was completely snowed in my friend's driveway. and whether i wanted to or not, i wasn't going anywhere.

I've had the flu all week and decided not to make it worse for myself by going outside. I've pretty much just been living in the bath tub and reading old issues of AARP my parents have lying around.
Oh, and doing the crosswords in the paper. Those have been fun to :)

I was at work with no power so I thought, What the hell, and drove down to Canal Park. Saw waves going completely over the walk down to the lighthouse. We went out later to some rocks on the hillside to tried to take on the 60 MPH gusts face to face. Was a fun day.

Hey, Sharksurfer... yes, it was probably me... I was the one in big-assed Sorel boots, black rain pants, driving a black Altima with a black pooch bouncing off the walls in the car... I've checked out the video footage and it's mostly crap. It was harder than hell to hold the thing steady enough so as not to induce nausea. It was interesting, trying to get some shots of the lighthouse... squeeze off a few in "continuous high" mode, turn back to wind, wipe water from lens filter, peek over shoulder to see when another breaker was coming in, spin back around and repeat the process...

So I guess you don't have a generator? I finally got the saturn out of the snow bank, darn driveway was drifted for the entire 1/4 mile! After I got out, rocking and shoveling, I went and got a neighbor with a skidder to plow me out. Oh yeah, the power went off hear Thursday night, and came back on today.
MOD
Karl W. 10 years ago
Wo! someone else has a 1/4 mile driveway. I couldn't really plow it since the dirt was so muddy, the truck would have just sank right in. So instead I just floored the impala out of my garage. luckily it was only drifts of a 1' to 2' mostly so I could go through it and then get onto soild ground. But my car was making sizzling noises after it was all in done. lol

O yeah, I only had my power out for an hour! : p plus we have wood heat too so no problems for me.
