We had an early flight the morning of the snow storm last week. Ended up being delayed with de-icing and some other things they blamed on the cold. Made us miss our connecting flight so we ended up getting a flight into a different airport and then driving to our destination.

Then when we got back to Minnesota, it snowed again. Sick of this.

I still haven't seen a consensus answer as to how much snow we're supposed to get. I've seen everything from 2-4" to 10-12". I'm hoping it just misses us completely but I doubt we'll be that lucky.

We had a least a foot on Saturday and it snowed again all day yesterday so not sure what we ended up with for a total.

I see a chance of snow Wednesday too, but it's also saying 40's/50's the rest of the week.

I would argue snow is much better than freezing rain.
