Puuussssh!!!

Massive President's day Blizzard 2011. Winter storm dumped well over a foot of snow over Sunday into Monday. Side streets don't get plowed right away. As a result cars, trucks, and vans were getting stuck throughout the day.

 

(Here in this photo there were two cars stuck at the same time. The people pushing this car belong to the other car that they just freed. Unfortunately they couldn't get this car unstuck. It took a bit more work and help to get this car free.)

 

Lesson learned: Don't try to drive through side streets in Saint Paul/Minneapolis until the plows can go through and clear the streets.

 

I tried to submit these to fox 9 weather photos. I don't know why they didn't take them... I can't get the email link thing to work, so I had to manually compose the message. Perhaps that's where I went wrong.

 

I wish someone could help me figure out how to get these kinds of photos submitted to news places.
