Snow Frustrates, But Also Brings Out Good Deeds
Shovels and snow blowers can be heard throughout one Crystal neighborhood on Monday. Barry and Peter, are two friends on a mission to get rid of more than a foot of snow.
“Last time I remember a snowfall like this was back in 83” said Barry.
The work is tedious and time consuming. So, Barry and Peter are teaming up to remove Mother Nature’s mess.
Heaving a large load of snow, Peter said “It’s pretty heavy, But you just got to deal with it though.”
But for Barry this isn’t a chore, rather a labor of love. Barry drove from Dakota County to help his elderly father who is fighting cancer.
“I was half hoping it was cleared by the neighbors,” laughed Barry.
There was plenty of snow to clear all across the northwest metro. Maple Grove topped the chart with 22 inches of snow according to the National Weather Service. Crystal and Robbinsdale were right behind with 16.5 inches and 16 inches respectively. The weather service says Plymouth recorded 15.5 inches.
Meanwhile, everyone we talked with says they are tired of all this winter-like weather.
“I’m supposed to be planting flowers and not shoveling snow,” said Sherry Hagen of Brooklyn Park.
