WTF is up with the weather?

Monday was beautiful here in southern MN. 40+ degrees outside, and the snow was nice and sticky and we were able to make snowmen. Then, not 24 hours later, the temperature dropped well over 50 degrees and we were in the middle of a full fledged blizzard.

I'm one of those Minnesotans who don't like the snow and winters. I don't snowmobile, ski, or play hockey. The only thing that I enjoy in regards to winter is sledding with my kids. Pretty strange huh? In fact, I have never been downhill skiing. Not even once. I think I have had ice skates on my feet twice in my life.


I had a pretty good poker weekend. It started off bad, but the donks were out in full force at night time. I even had a successful session at 400NL! Here is a quick graph of Saturday through Sunday.

Here are today's Sweet Hands of the Day.

I have two, both of which the other player slowplayed their hand, and got burned by it.

The button has TT and he just limps. lol. And then hits his set and doesn't raise. Then doesn't raise on the turn. Then my gin card hits the river, and that is when he decides to start raising. Sweet

I plan on playing in the mookie and a whole lot of poker tonight. I have a good $200 in bonus money that still needs to be cleared. I won't clear it all, but I only have two more days to get in as much as possible.

And I leave you with the picture of the day. This is the coolest thing I have ever seen.

Wow...that looked like my house! I'm still shivering from clearing the driveway last night and this morning.

I'm in Rochester, you must not be far away.

Keep warm.
