Heavy snow fell between March 15th and 17th up in northeast Minnesota, with some of the heaviest snow falling near Tofte and Lutsen. The top report was just northwest of Lutsen, where 13" of snow was reported. These pictures from Tettegoughe State Park make it look like the middle of winter along parts of the North Shore! Of course, we're (quickly) nearing the end of March, which means this snow won't last too long - but hopefully it is enough to kill off any bugs that may have already popped up during our warm beginning to March.
