Finally, Some Snow

Though it’s been getting colder and colder in Minnesota, the snow production in the Twin Cities has been lackluster thus far. I’m of the opinion that if it’s going to be cold it should at least snow. Placate us with some pretty scenery, Mother Nature.

Yesterday, the snow started to come down in a respectable quantity. In St. Paul, we’re expecting up to six inches. When the snowstorm began, I ventured outside to snap a few photos of my neighborhood before my fingers froze.

Lowertown St. Paul is made up of many repurposed industrial buildings and factories, all of which look especially nice after a dusting of snow. The cold kept me from staying out for too long, but I was able to capture a few images of our wintry neighborhood.

The old Lowertown Bike Shop garage. The shop has moved to the Union Station building, but the graffiti art remains.
I’ve got a thing for photos in alleys—especially when surrounded by old, brick buildings.
More alleys. The wind and snow were really picking up at this point.
I imagine that his project will be on hold until the spring.
