SUNDAY: Cold sunshine, whiff of wind chill. Low: 30. High: 40
Can you recall what you were doing 20 years ago today? I can... I was 9 years old getting ready to go trick or treating as a cow. It was a homemade costume that my mom made and I'm happy she put lots black spots on there otherwise, I would have gotten lost in the snow.
The northwest flank of the storm kept Minnesota and Wisconsin in the heavy snow corridor. Minneapolis picked up a whopping 28.4" of snow from the storm, which still holds the record for the single biggest snowstorm in recorded history at MSP. Duluth had 36.9" from the event, which was the single storm state record up until 1994 when 47" fell in the Arrowhead.

Other than the witch watch and the werewolf warning, there's nothing spooky about trick or treating weather today. 2 storms look to take shape this week, the more significant one moves in the the weekend - Todd Nelson
