THE WEATHER FORECASTERS were right.
As I snapped this photo from my living room window awhile ago, this pick-up truck slid on the snowy street.
Heavy, wet snow began falling in Faribault about 90 minutes ago, shortly after lunch.
Mega flakes fell initially, but have now decreased in size. This is another shot taken through a front window of my Faribault home.
It began as a beautiful snow globe snow.
Neither rain nor snow…later than usual mail delivery in my neighborhood.
But as we Minnesotans know, this is the heaviest to shovel, the most challenging to remove without plugging the snowblower, the type of snow that really slicks the roads. (Be careful out there.)
A blizzard warning remains in effect for my area and most of southeastern Minnesota until noon Friday, according to the National Weather Service.
As soon as the snow began, my neighbor girl slipped outside to build a snowman and a snow fort. Faribault schools were closed today because of the impending blizzard. Photo shot through a second story window in my home.
