The Minnesota Shuffle

Sarah and I are relaxing a bit in between bouts of unpacking and putting together Ikea furniture.

It's quite warm here by Minnesota standards, but this is creating its own complications. There's approximately six inches of snow on the ground and it's all turning to slush.

When the air temperature gets below freezing, the entire neighborhood becomes a huge sheet of ice. Our car slid down the driveway last night and this morning I had to go out and scrape all the slush off.

And I've learned from the Minnesotans that you the best way to travel on ice is to shuffle along...the Minnesota shuffle.
