Halloween 1991: 28-1/2″ of snow fell on the Twin Cities from one winter storm. I was reminded of this when the East Coast found themselves in an early Winter Wonderland over the weekend. I think Duluth received over 3 feet of the white stuff from that same 1991 storm. I remember going deer hunting in Northern Minnesota right after that storm. The woods were intensely quiet that weekend, but it was an extremely enjoyable hunt just the same.
Interior Alaska has 2-3″ on the ground right now, and temps reached a high of -12 today where I was at.
