Moving in a blizzard…

I could take a picture, but it’s dark outside an I’m too lazy. And too tired.

Of all weekends for a blizzard to hit western Minnesota, it had to be the weekend we were moving. My brother drove up here yesterday in a 24′ U-haul Truck, and the original plan was that he would spend the night, so we could take our time loading up the truck. But we kept an eye on the weather… and some how we (well, mostly my brother and Chris) filled the U-haul in 4 hours, and sent him on his way!

Chris left an hour later with the dogs and a cats… and left behind a pretty big moving mess, and waaayyy more stuff than I could possibly fit in my truck.

If they hadn’t left last night, they would have been stuck here until Monday. The blizzard was rolling in right as Chris left, and it hasn’t let up at all. I shoveled a good 8″ deep path from the house to the garage, and spent the entire day cleaning and packing, unpacking, repacking my truck. Now I’m all alone in an empty house. I really hope that the storm lets up tonight because I need to be out of here by 10 tomorrow morning!

    Oh ick! Moving always sucks, but moving in bad weather is terrible. When my parents and I moved from Prescott to Forest Lake (about an hour drive) it was in the mid to high 90s all week. Being sweaty and tired didn’t help the move, and neither did the old blazer we were driving in for most of the trips, because it kept overheating so we had to drive with the heat on, 10 miles under the speed limit.

    Well good luck with the weather and with your move to the new house!
