The snow you see on the ground this morning is the remnants of a monster storm that cycloned over Minneapolis – St Paul over the weekend. A strong southerly flow up the Appalachian Mountains and a weak system over Hudson Bay whisked the storm away before it could drop much snow here in Toronto.

No snow day for you, now get on your bike and go to work!
Via BoingBoing yesterday, direct from Minneapolis…

It’s now mostly stopped snowing, at least in my corner of Minneapolis. Depending on where you measure, somewhere between 14 and 20 inches of snow fell here today. And it’s still blowing around.
So, naturally, this was a perfect day to travel by bicycle.
After all, our estimated 4,000 winter bike commuters are the reason Bicycle magazine named Minneapolis the #1 bike city in America. Cheers to you, winter cyclists. That said, I hope most of you weren’t out in this mess today.
