Andrew Klein, science librarian, walks up the Lawn Ave. sidewalk Jan. 14. “The snow storm last week was ferocious and awesome, even by Minnesotan standards. It’s not uncommon to get two feet of snow in Minnesota during the winter, but very rarely in a single day,” Klein says. “I enjoyed the storm and even enjoyed wading through unplowed and unshoveled Miles Avenue on my way to work.”
