1/26/2014 Saint Cloud, MN Early AM Snow Before The Blizzard


With a blizzard warning in effect for the Saint Cloud, MN area and most of west central Minnesota, the snow started to fall during the overnight hours. 

While the high winds for the Blizzard Warning are still hours away, the several inches of light and fluffy snow that are currently falling will make it perfect for another ground blizzard.

Freezing Antifreeze

The other day I did a video from the back yard here in Minnesota. 

With the prolonged extreme cold temperatures in the Upper Midwest, and double digit negative highs for most of Minnesota, here is an extreme cold example for vehicles that do not have strong enough Anti-Freeze in their cooling system.

The antifreeze used in this video was from a vehicle that was purchased from Kansas and was not winterized for the extreme Minnesota winters.

1/5/2014 Saint Cloud, MN extreme cold.

I was out playing around in the cold this morning. 

With the start of the next arctic blast to the upper Midwest, the temps have started to drop well below zero.  Shot in Saint Cloud, MN which is the far northwest suburb of the Twin Cities metro area, the temperatures have dropped rapidly after midnight to the double digit below zero range.
