Myself and Little Sister chilling, literally, near a snowbank.
Just got back to Atlanta last night, and was picked up by Tavo, wearing a t-shirt, with the windows wide open to let that 70+ degree Southern breeze in. Wow.
I hadn't been to South Dakota during the winter in a loooong time--and this winter was particularly cold. I flew into Minneapolis and met my sister and mom to drive the rest of the way. I'd worn a couple long sleeve t-shirts, a sweat shirt, a fleece jacket, and then my regular jacket--and I was still shaking. Minnesota wasn't that bad, though--16 degrees.
As we entered the plains, the temperature kept dropping. 5, 4, 0, -2, -5...and this does not include the windchill. I think the coldest it got was right around 10 below--and the warmest was right around 6 degrees. Brrr...the snow sounds different when its that cold out. It squeaks.
Luckily, the roads were clear and the snow wasn't drifting--it was pretty much frozen in place. Had a great time visiting family and will post more pictures as soon as I retrieve them from my camera. This nice, blurry number is from my phone--surprise surprise :)
Glad to be back home in sunny ATL!
