I’ve lived in Minneapolis, Minnesota, for nearly five years, plus I’m still not accustomed to the snow, it starts snowing sometime in November plus keeps snowing until well into April, the accumulation adds up to around fifty inches per year.
When I first moved to Minneapolis, I had never even seen snow in-person.
In the films plus on cable, snow looks charming plus passionate. The actors plus actresses don’t bother with hats or gloves plus never seem cold, however nobody every needs to shovel the driveway or walkways, scrape the ice off the windshield of the car or bush off the hood, but simple tasks like pushing a shopping cart across a parking lot is a nightmare. I am regularly upset about the weight of the snow on the roof, back deck plus trampoline. I’ve spent a fortune hiring someone to plow my driveway plus haul away the mounds of snow. I’ve had to purchase heavy boots, moderate coats, scarves, gloves, hats plus jackets to combat the cold. For around seven months per year, the outdoor temperature drops below freezing, but readings in the teens or even the disadvantages aren’t unusual, and blizzard conditions, university closings plus driving bans are common. The furnace is one of the most crucial systems of the house plus has a large impact on the budget. If it fails, there is the fear of the water pipes freezing. The winters are long, brutal, luxurious, a lot of work plus can present safety risks. It seems to take forever for Springtime to arrive. I get happy for the first sign of robins plus sprous of daffodils. I watch for the lilac trees to bud plus look forward to opening the windows plus airing out the house.
