Ah, Minneapolis

We’ve received tons of messages on facebook the past couple days. It is really awesome to hear from so many friends!

Though, one message in particular caught my eye this evening:

Minneapolis SnowEmergency added you as a friend on Facebook…


I clicked over to the profile for a look. It’s pretty dang hilarious. Can’t tell if it is a joke or not (I do have a couple friends who are truly clever and would set up something like this).

Under interests:

I’m mostly interested in streets cleared of snow from curb to curb.

Favorite Books:

Non-fiction books about residents of Minneapolis shoveling their sidewalks within 24 hours of a snowfall. Go to the library and ask for the “Snow shoveling motivation” section. I promise they won’t laugh at you.

I don’t know if you have to live in Minneapolis to find this funny. Do other cities have the Snow Emergency? But this is just the sort of quirky thing that makes living in Minneapolis so funny.

I mean what kind of city makes videos like this:


(If you’re on facebook and live in Minneapolis, you may want to friend Mr. Snow Emergency. They’ll post a status update when it’s time to move your cars! I think Facebook has a policy of not allowing fake people to have profiles, but whatever.)

  1. In NJ, generally the rule is no parking if snow covered. IF you know a storm is coming through thats a great rule. If you sleep through the storm, then you get plowed in, and if your car gets damaged its your fault.

    I have always lived in places that have driveways or a parking lot so its never been an issue for me, but I do feel sorry for the people having to dig out of that.

    On a side note, I was once caught DRIVING in a snow storm and at the time had a very small white car, and they plowed me under on the HIGHWAY! I was terrified. Fortunately someone saw it happen and was able to stop and put up flares and dig me out, because I couldnt even open the doors!
