    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

Love the snow?  Have you had a pass to Spirit since September?!  Well, you’re in luck.  Duluth is supposed to get almost a foot of snow overnight tonight, making the white stuff plentiful and messy as ever.  Despite the fun of hitting the slopes and having snowball fights, it is super important to be prepared for this much snow.

  • Stock up on basic supplies such as bottled water, toilet paper, and non-perishable food items today.  Power outages can occur with such a massive snow fall and it’s possible that you will be unable to leave your house or apartment tonight or tomorrow
  • Avoid travel plans during tonight and tomorrow morning to ensure that you can ride out the storm safely and securely
  • If you must travel, bring with a car kit stocked with basic snow supplies such as a scraper, sand or litter for traction, hot hands warmers, blankets, and a spare
  • Get a shovel or ensure that you have one available to help dig out vehicles and clear walkways leading to your house or apartment

What you can do to enjoy and pass the time!:

  • Work on studying for finals or organize work for final portfolios/projects
  • Watch Christmas movies and do some holiday decorating
  • Bake Christmas cookies and make hot cocoa
  • Wrap up presents you have bought and figure out who is left on your list
  • Build a snowman in your yard.  Don’t forget the carrot nose!
  • Enjoy a favorite hobby or past time, such as drawing, knitting, or scrapbooking
