To the editor: Minnesota Nice? Yes, it does exist! Our 12-plus inch, snow-filled driveways in the 9100 block of Indian Blvd is a great example. My daughter had to be to work at 10 a.m. and we couldn't get the snow blower working. So we started shoveling. Shortly thereafter, our neighbor comes down with the snow blower and gets us cleared out. As he's working, I notice three-to-four other neighbors heading to other driveways with their blowers. The evening before, two neighbors came to help my daughter's stuck car get up the driveway.
