Last night a freezing rain coated all of the Twin Cities with a slick glazing of slippery ice from top to bottom.  With the overnight treacherous, icy road conditions, or actually, ice on everything conditions, the question is: “should we delay the opening time of Totally Kids this Sunday?”

The Minnesota State Patrol is reporting a total of 373 crashes — 341 of those in the metro area — as of 8 a.m. The crashes have resulted in one death and 61 injuries.

Business as Usual

Team Totally members are at the store ready for a Sunday FUN-day! We are so lucky to have a team using the United States Postal Service credo ““Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds”. It is Sunday so those postal workers do not even have to battle today’s slippery Sunday. Business as usual and open at Sunday’s regular time of twelve noon. Stop in for a cup of hot cider and cookies.


How lucky today’s icy roads were not challenging us during a weekday Rush Hour. If you want an entertaining game for holiday travel or stay at home play days you need to add the Rush Hour game to your bag of tricks.
