It's always a good thing when a snow emergency is called because it means the plows are coming through to do their business and make the streets a bit more useable.

No snow shovel can manage those berms adequately. Only a spade will take care of that icy business. Man, I love Minnesota. Even now. Especially now. Winter is what we do best. :)
