If you know me you know one thing, I love pictures! I love taking them, being in them, looking at them even when they are not mine! Why? Because pictures tell stories and because stories, as we all know, are better with pictures! Pictures validate. They make events real for years to come. That is my intention with this blog. Every one of my stories will be accompanied by a picture or video. After all that is why people tune in to blogs is it not? You can count on it here!
MINNESOTA'S OTHER SEASON!
Winter and Road Construction!
Is it just me or does it seem like the last couple years have been just terrible for this?? Maybe it's just me But it seems like every road I turn down lately seems to be closed or under construction. We put a man on the Moon, You would really think by now they could have found a material that doesn't fall apart in extreme temps like we have here in MN.
Unless of course it's all part of a greater conspiracy! Hmmm That might be a blog for another day.
For today this is all I have. On small piece of my day and yours! Happy Road Construction!
So we decided to take the girls to a nice quiet breakfast at our favorite spot. The Original Pancake House in Edina. Delicious food can even make you forget you have an allergy to dairy, right Katie??
Everything was awesome.
Then on our way home we see the Burnsville Mobile command center driving down the frontage road in Burnsville. So we followed it to see where it was going. As we drove by Buck Ski hill we saw the entire Burnsville Police force in the trailer park next to Buck Hill.
We "needed" windshield wiper blades so we pulled in to O'Reily's where the Burnsville Command center happened to be parked. Truly an amazing sight to watch as the men began getting their gear on to head into the trailer park.
But, by far the coolest part was when the camouflage sharp shooters showed up!
Then shortly after several men dressed in camo came out loaded with gear and shields.
We also saw an all black M.A.G.G. armored truck top hatch open with an armed man out the top!!!
I'm telling you this was serious business!!
It all ended peacefully as far as we know. We sat in the parking lot for almost 2 hours waiting for something to happen. We have no idea why there was a standoff but I am sure we will find out tonight on the news.
You just never know what your day will hold! This was pretty cool!
