Snow, Snow, Snow

Here are some pictures of MN. Prepare yourself. Perhaps you’ll all want to visit in the summer.

Here it is…snow…taken at the gas station in Eagan. Woohoo!

Here is a picture of a cold Tom pumping gas. Doesn’t he look hot in his new sportscoat? He’s not wearing his new jeans, but he’s got on my favorite pair of shoes.

Here is a picture of me next to the pile from the snowplow, just for some perspective.  And no, I was not too warm in my puffy coat.

Thankfully, Eagan has some decent restaurants, including this mecca….

Eating out is cheaper in MN.  We got an enormous amount of food at Boston Market for under $15.  In fact, it was enough that we weren’t hungry until around 8 p.m., and in our efforts to find someplace for dinner we discovered that most places close early, like 9 or 10 p.m.  Hmm….that’s a bit odd.

Here is a picture of the Eagan building.  I can’t even do justice to it – it just rises out of nothing.  We saw an aerial photograph of the site and it was the first time I’ve seen a photograph with a curved horizon.  Most of the time to shoot aerial picture, you take on in an airplane, at a reasonable distance from the ground.  I can only assume that to get the entire Thomson site into the an aerial photo, you would either need to be in a rocket or do something so the horizon curved.  It was trippy.

It was nice to get home to our own beds however.  And a big thanks go to Grandma Judy and Grandpa Bill for watching the dogs.  Judy said they were very good, but she was worried about Lola for the first day and a half – she was very depressed and off color.  She even thought about taking her to the vet!  But she came around and enjoyed spending time under Bill’s desk as he worked.  The girls didn’t get too playful, but that was probably a good thing as the Brokaw’s were also watching Coco, the brown lab, until Sunday.  Lola had one incident with Coco when she chased her behind a Christmas tree and almost knocked the whole thing down (Coco did, not Lola).

Does anyone know where I could find Lola some snowbooties?
