How much Snow?

On our deck benches it looks like at least 5 new inches of snow and it's still coming down. It's funny - the benches have been bare three different times since we got home from San Diego - now they're buried again! Isn't it ironic that this is the week of Spring Break? If this storm had waited a couple of days, it would have been a great April Fool's joke.

HOWEVER.....I'd much rather be here than out in Fargo where the Red River is flooding up to their elbows, and the temperature is zero! How horrible would that be??

Last summer we drove through Fargo on I-94. The Red River is the State line between Minn. and N.D., so to enter Fargo you go over a bridge. We didn't spend much time there, but I remember thinking it was a very clean town, and much larger than I expected. It's a college town - it has North Dakota State and also a lutheran college.
Those folks are fighting to save their homes and trying to stay warm at the same time. Makes our 5 inches look like a cake walk.
