This afternoon Jason and I had a date to the Vikings/Bears game! He received tickets from his sister for his birthday a few months back and today was the day! Oh, today was also the day that winter decided to show up - just our luck! It snowed for about twenty hours straight today. Twenty! It's just now letting up. We went from no snow to about a foot in a single day - crazy!
We paid a small fortune to park at a neighboring ramp because we were late (we missed kick-off) and it was snowing pretty steadily only to end up on the roof of the structure, ha!
We had a fun time! The section we were in was probably about 85% Bears fans which made it fun! At times the entire stadium was chanting "let's go Bears!" and our neighbor told us you could hear it on television - it was that loud! The entire row in front of us was a family and Jason found a Viking friend amongst them to cheer with! In the end the Vikings won and we spent a couple hours driving the ~45 miles home.
We are under a winter storm warning and I am a bit nervous for the drive into work in the morning. They said that once the snow stopped the winds would pick up pushing some areas into blizzard-like conditions as the snow blows around. Oh, the joys of winter in Wisconsin!
