Snow on the ground

It snowed today. A lot of the Minnesota drivers apparently forgot how to drive on snowy and sometimes slippery roads and so there was a big traffic snarl for most of the morning in the Twin Cities. I drove into town from the north, where, incidentally, they had less trouble with the snow, at about 11 a.m. to find Interstate 94 going west backed up to Spaghetti Junction. I flew by on 35E because that was flowing smoothly.

It's going to warm up a bit later in the week, but we seem to be on a wintry trend. We may be domed. After talking with the Prairie Princess via phone, I went out for a walk to see how slippery the sidewalks were. They were a bit slick, but passable and I covered a few blocks looking for a photo representative of the day. Because there are a lot of jack-o-lanterns still on porch steps that the squirrels have yet to consume, I thought this shot on a neighbor's porch would do fine. Snow and an orange vegetable.

Before I forget, November is Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month.

Today, November 12, is National Pizza Day with Everything (Except Anchovies) Day.

The snow capped aging jack-o-lantern is perfect.

Your notice is too late in the day for the pizza. Maybe too late for the Alzheimers thing, too.
