I'm alive and back at my (hopefully temporary) home in Chaska. It was slow going for a while from Fargo to around Alexandria, after that it opened up a little. After St. Cloud the roads were clear and dry. And as a little added bonus, I managed to just miss all the traffic in the cities. So I guess now its back to work, I hope they're not pissed, there wasn't a whole lot I could do when I-94 was closed. My poor car is a giant ice cube, totally coated in a quarter inch sheet of ice. That'll take a couple months to come off I imagine, at least it'll protect it from door dings. Now I have to square away my drivers license situation (ND license expired, they won't give me a MN license until I show them a birth certificate, waiting on birth certificate to be sent to me) and my license plate situation (bought the car w/o plates and they gave me a temporary tag while waiting for the plates to come in, which expired this weekend) and I'll be all set. Thanks to everyone who sent me birthday cards too, I appreciate it. Now if you'll excuse me I have to go kick my furnace that my slumlord so kindly fixed for me (by fixed I mean didn't do shit to).
