If any of you wonder just how bad Minnesota gets during the winter, now you know. :o

yeah, I used to live there, but usually it isn't this bad, just a pile of snow builds up after a while...

Crazy video.

I took a business training trip to Minneapolis a couple of winters ago, after HP took over MacDermid Incorporated.  During a break, our trainer took us out to the surrounding area that had a pond partially frozen over.  She said they usually have hockey games during a lunch hour on the pond.  We walked down to it, and for the first time in my life I walked partially across frozen water (too damn scared to go more than a few feet ... even though the woman walked all around the shoreline like it was a sidewalk).

You NEVER see that in Texas :).  Worst winter here was an ice storm back in 1979, that almost literally ground the Dallas/Fort Worth area to a halt.  Compared to what the northeast gets, it was just a hiccup.

Hell, citizens in Texas panic when there's six inches of snow on the ground, and close schools.  I guess it's because everyone here knows Texas drivers don't know how to drive :D.  A Texas driver on ice ... wow, that's a sight to behold too :)
