Snowpocalype II in Minneapolis

We had our second big snowstorm of the winter yesterday and today. This is now one of the snowiest winters on record in Minneapolis. I took a bunch of photos during the storm, they don't really work with the photothread I am working on now and are not of the same quality so I thought I would post them by themselves as a small set.

These are from yesterday as the storm was starting, the storm picked up as I was shooting:

This is what happens if you try to take a photo in a whiteout:

These are from today when the storm was supposed to be mostly over:

Interesting to note that one home still has a Christmas Wreath at it's front door.

It really looks like a nice town. I have never been to america, but this is more or less how I always imagine that it is looking like. It is also cool to see that nobody seems to care about the snow and that life just goes on as always. If it snows like that here in belgium, it would be total chaos

So true haha. Thought, when part of the UK got that much snow in December, it was the freezing after that caused the real problem.

Great shots of Minneapolis!
