Blizzard People
The blizzard unleashed a deluge of snow, and you unleashed a torrent of comment on Twitter.

Sometimes it was to share shovel strategies, sometimes it was to bitch about about the snowplows. Sometimes it was to find humor in the mess.

Here's some of what flew across our radar.

@TheFancyRay

I WROTE A MOVIE! It's called "Purple Snow". It's just like Purple Rain - except Prince and I ride around on snow blowers...

I believe I just heard a St. Paul cop just radioing in a prostitution tag. You've got to be dang tough to be out walking these streets.

@antrobus178

The cities of Minneapolis and St Paul have been canceled for the evening.

@emilysaysso

Mixed results to moving my car: I'm in an elementary school lot because I couldn't get any farther. It MIGHT be legal, and I left a note.

@NickColeman

1991 blizzard: Dome stayed up, streets got plowed, Schools, airport stayed open. We are not #blizzardpeople. We suck.

@laurabrod

Maybe some #blizzardpeople can come help move the jetway to the plane because it has moved 2 inches in 30 minutes & we're stuck on here!

@modapolis

Target's sold out of shovels.... there are snowdrifts up to my knees surrounding my car... #nowwhat

@minnemom

School starting late due to extreme cold, so my kids decide to go out and play for a while. They are true #blizzardpeople.

@pjcloud9

The sky is falling, Minnesota! Alarmists all of you. Is it the caffeine or just boredom? #justsad #domepocalypse #blizzardpeople

@completelydark

Early closings, no bus service, 2' of #snOMG ... but who's asking the most important question: How many liquor stores are still OPEN?

@elisDonutBurger

@DanBarreiroKFAN @PerkatPlay can't Hutch, Allen and Kluwe just fly down and pick up the Giants so we can play this game tomorrow? #tsnownami

@johnmoe

Snowed in. We have eaten Brett Favre. Oh, we have plenty of groceries but we just felt it was time. #blizzardpeople

@mbrodkorb

I'm so thankful that I purchased a snow-blower last year...my driveway looks like the planet Hoth...#fb #hoth

@lawnonymous

If you were bitching about your property taxes, and now you are bitching about snow removal: FASCINATING

@quick13

There has to be a name for the stuff the plows leave behind in your driveway, or there should be

@Cassie4MJ

My friends in California would for sure not understand that I just shoveled a path to my grill to make ribs.

@Pauleichberger

I don't mind the blizzard as long as it comes in a Dairy Queen cup.

@WentRogue

Is this baking-cookies-during-a-blizzard thing specific to Minnesota? I'd never heard of it before.

@aaronklemz

Who knew that a blizzard could be such a generator of neologisms? #blizzardpeople #snowpocalyspe #snowmageddon #domepocalypse

@BridgetCusick

MOTHER OF GOD, I'M IN MINNESOTA.
