Snow Day!

2004 Saint Paul Winter Carnival Ice Palace

Well, the other shoe has dropped in terms of Minnesota Winter. We had the sub-zero temps last week and this week is all about the snow! We got over a foot of snow here in the last 2 days...and I got a snow day and didn't have to go to school last night.... if only I weren't already at work, it could've been just like the good old days.

I stole the brother's digital camera again and took some fun snowy pics. I will have to get some more daytime ones, but I like the night ones too.

As far as the pesky Medallion is concerned however, I am beginning to get discouraged. Apparently it is in Phalen and not Battle least...I think that's what they're getting at....grumble........

Here are the clues so far:

Clue #1 -- Sunday, January 25, 2004
Say it ain't so, Clueless Joe,
And all who prattle and bark.
Stop yer clue-bashin', if treasure's your passion,
Go you look in an area park.

Clue #2 -- Monday, January 26, 2004
Jughead has spoken, look for the token
We'll make it worth your while
Like Archie, you seek an object this week
As green as the Emerald Isle.

Clue #3 -- Tuesday, January 27, 2004
"Help me!" you say. "Any time. Any day.
It's neither here nor there."
A quite clever device, but beware false advice.
Prank? Perhaps. All is fair.

Clue #4 -- Wednesday, January 28, 2004
East Side, West Side, take your honey for a ride
To a stony and sandy place
Come one, come all, ever following the bouncing ball
To the swift belongs the race.

Clue #5 -- Thursday, January 29, 2004
Go to the place, it's no disgrace,
Where the girls shall be happy to dance
Don't look in the rough, but if you want the stuff
You may have to get dirt on your pants.

Clue #6 -- Friday, January 30, 2004
Take your bow, don't aim low,
Be steady on your feet
Take a stand with your fiery band
And prepare for the coming defeat

Clue #7 -- Saturday, January 31, 2004
Still up a creek? Here's where to peek,
Though be wary to avoid a wet drop
This is no foolin' - monster fish are schoolin'
Not far from the wintry crop.

Clue #8 -- Sunday, February 1, 2004
Tilt at a windmill, hunt till a standstill
A plump pitcher may hold you at bay
Look it's quite likely not far from old lakely
"What a bunch of malarkey!" you say.

Clue #9 -- Monday, February 2, 2004
Go take a risk, we threw the disk
Where it seems you're far from succeedin'
Unless you are blind, the treasure you'll find
Among plants that are unfit for weedin'.

Clue #10 -- Tuesday, February 3, 2004
What could be bolder than killing a soldier?
A crime both evil and grim.
Accused of the deed, but soon after freed
So we name a park after him!
