Hmm, population density of MN = 67 bodies per square mile. Population densities of CT and MA are 739 and 849 bodies per square miles respectively. More than 10 times that of MN.

When we begin to start talking about the logistics of snow removal in MN there are 4236 miles of highway for each individual. Much easier for plows and emergency personnel to get around. In CT there is only 61 miles for each person and 90 miles for each MA resident. Tends to make for cramped quarters for everyone involved. This is why the governors of MA, CT and even tiny RI issued directives in an effort to get everyone off the road.

Yes, it might be colder in MN and there might be more snow, but due to the low population density it is much easier removed and doesn't create near as much havoc as it does in high population density areas.

Just my 2 cents.

This awesome snow thrower was parked at the State Police Barracks yesterday. I'm guessing that it came on loan from from Danbury Airport. My brother got some pics of it in action on his way to his EMS job earlier today.

Nice pictures! I had no idea such an animal existed. Wow! That thing really throws the snow judging by that last picture.

Ah, Pilgrim! You are only familiar with the term Snowbird, or Winter Texan if coming to Texas. You need to know about the "Summer Bird." The Summer Bird is when we fire up the RV and head to cooler climes. Last Summer we did 4600+ miles between May and September. The majority of that was on the West coast from CA to OR and typical 65 degree weather, then across to Glacier, further East and turned South for home.

I feel sympathy for all you weekend warriors that are still working stiffs, needing to stay rooted where you are. (NOT)

You can take all that snow and shovel it right back up a..... back up to Iceland.

16 1/2 hours of snow compressed into 41 seconds. Video was shot in Hartford, CT.

We're in the middle of a snow storm here in Colorado that started early Saturday morning and will continue through Monday. We've already accumulated about 18 - 20 inches, and it's only half over. The weather channel hasn't given it a name, no one from national TV has sent reporters to stand out in the blizzard and fall down for the benefit of viewers - we just call it winter. I've already plowed the 160 foot long driveway twice and cleared the snow off 1500 square feet of deck. Hey national TV networks - stop by! DW just made some insanely great chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, and the hot chocolate ain't bad either.

Yep, makes it hard for me to fathom why my daughter is a Californian by birth and a Canadian by choice!
