Record breaking Snow


On Wednesday we had 8.9 inches/22.6cm of snow. As of Wednesday evening the Twin Cities has had 31.5 inches/80cm of snow for the month of February. This is the most snow for the month of February on record. We have about 10 inches/25.4cm to go before topping the all time record for amount of snow fall in a single month.

As usual, by Thursday morning everything was back to normal. Minnesotans seem to take snow in stride.

Bye for now.

  • Update* The Twin Cities received 39in/99cm of snow for the month of February. This means that February 2019 was the 4th snowiest month on record for the twin cities. Irony is that 2-4in/5-10cm forecast for March 1st.
