Our two college students are home from Montana

12/14/08 – Our two college students are home from Montana, triggering the urge to select our Christmas tree. We ventured out into the teeth of a significant snow storm to find a non-traditional tree. After much discussion, we selected a multi-forked birch.
Snow fell at more than an inch an hour today. We got 12″ from this storm, followed by bitter cold and high winds. Winter is good in northern Minnesota!
Carl, Roy, Homer, Clare and Phoebe Hansen cram into the back seat of the pickup truck to go tree hunting.
The tree felling crew at work. How many people can you see in this blizzard?
Roy was a big help straightening out the lights.
After all the fun, the final result drew ooohs and aaahs from the crowd.
