You're going to have to do better than that

We got 17 inches of snow this weekend and it was -7F when I woke up this morning and with the wind chill it feels like -22F. Awesome. Actually and sadly, I didn't think it was that bad. Friday night I went out to a local art college, to see the senior films. My friend is a film major and will be graduating next year and he had assisted on one of the films, and it was really neat to see them all! Then we all went out for drinks and the snowstorm hit MPLS around 11pm. I stayed over at my friend Amber's house as I am not one to drink and drive, especially in a blizzard! The next morning there was already like six inches of snow but I dug my car out and took a meandering 45 minute drive home (it should take 10 minutes). There were so many streets blocked with stuck cars, tow trucks, snow drifts, etc. so I had to keep turning off onto random streets and slowly wandering toward my house. I was so happy when I got home and got my car in the garage. I hunkered down for all of Saturday which is too bad since some friends were having a dinner party that night and some more friends were having a white elephant party later in the night. But I spent the day watching The Walking Dead and started reading Infinite Jest. I stayed in all day on Sunday too since the roads were still not plowed well. I was hoping for a snow day off work today, but no such luck, so I sadly trudged out to the bus stop this morning.

Oh yes, cashmere sweater and wool pants, you make it all better (Don't worry, I wore my big ol' snowboots to work and changed shoes once I got here. Thank God for the skyways.)

I am so jealous of snowpocalypse 2010. That Metrodome footage was freaky. Also, you look super cute. Those pants make the outfit. Are those bows or butterflies? Stay warm, even with the great Skyways.

What no snow day?! St.Paul got one, I'm home today. That's just unfair for you. I'm sorry. I guess YOUR city knows how to plow the streets in a timely fashion. ;)
ps. LOVE that blouse!

It was just nuts, wasn't it? Still is, actually! Not looking forward to dealing with my plowed-in driveway.

@Rad - I'm not positive but I think they are bows? You can see a close up of them here:
