A Massive Blizzard Blanketed Minneapolis In Snow In 1991 And It Will Never Be Forgotten
For many Minnesotans, blizzards and snowstorms tend to blend together. After all, the Land of 10,000 Lakes is one of the snowiest places in the United States, and a dumping of snow is just another winter day. But there are some storms that live on in the collective memory of all Minnesotans. These are storms so big, that result in snow piles so huge, that they will likely never be forgotten. In 1991, these conditions combined with what was supposed to be a fun holiday. It resulted in one of the most famous blizzards in Minnesota history.
