Forgotten how to drive on snow

Flew to Minneapolis last Monday and the weather was down at 5 F blinking freezing. I had an early appointment on the Tuesday and woke up to 5 inches of snow on top of the car. Luckily one of the advantages of such cold temperatures is that the snow is light and fluffy and not heavy and wet. It did not take too long to get the car uncovered but it made for a very “interesting” drive.

On the Wednesday night I was able to go and visit my first live basketball team we had great seats and I did my best to support the home team despite their close loss. I have to say there are as many time outs as there is actual playing time but there was plenty of activity going on in the breaks. Everything from dancing to the Memphis street flippers and a slam dunk squad. Flew home on Thursday evening and the knock on effect from the winter storms in the north east meant that it was gone midnight by the time I got back.

All the animals were pleased to see me back and this time I have also taken a photo of the barn cats as well. And yes I am going to buy them some new bowls.

Still scared of you !!

I was thrilled to see we have daffodils in amongst the trees – It was a great surprise and reminds me of Wales. Friday morning we went to get the cars tagged but I will let Rob relate that tale.
