Preparing for a winter storm in Minnesota December 8, 2009

Winter drive between Faribault & Morristown, 2008.

Stocked up on eggs and milk.

Got gas for the snowblower.

Now waiting

for the winter storm.

Dreamed about a tornado.

Woke up

frightened.

No school?

he hopes.

Only a trace of snow.

Hopes dashed.

Maybe tomorrow.

Will we see wind-sculpted snowbanks by Wednesday here in southeastern Minnesota?
