The multi-day snow storm that spanned December 2, 3, and 4, 2013 packed a serious punch, dropping feet of snow across the Twin Ports region. With parts of Duluth seeing over 2 feet of snow, where does this storm sit in the record books?
Mother Nature loves to give us the one-two punch of snow, followed by wind chills hitting 25 below zero. It's like she's saying "Here, look at all this lovely snow. Too bad you can't go outside to enjoy it, sucker!" Well, who needs Mother Nature? Stay warm inside enjoy these 5 movies.
Wind, waves, cold, and snow hit the Twin Ports as the first major winter storm of the year passed through. Much of the area saw several feet of snow fall (see snowfall totals) to kick off the long winter season.
The first major snow storm of the season packed a serious punch, with waves of snow through the first week of December leaving Twin Ports and Northland residents digging out. So, how much snow did we get?
Whether you're walking the dog, checking out the waves or even training for Grandma’s Marathon (which isn't easy with the snow and ice), use extreme caution around the Aerial Lift Bridge. It never occurs to me that there could be potential danger lurking above me, other than from the pigeons and seagulls.
The National Weather Service has predicted the next phase of the snowstorm will result in at least 15 additional inches of snow in the area accompanied by strong winds and falling temperatures. This is a dangerous storm and the City of Duluth advises no travel.
While many places in the region have already seen between 1 and 2 feet of snow (see latest snowfall totals here), another heavy round is expected to hit today, leaving a final storm total of between 2 and 3 feet through much of the area before the snow clears out and frigidly cold conditions slide into the area.
A major snow storm has us all hunkered down in our area. That is unless you have to go to work or school... So it's nice to know how hard our snow plow truck drivers are working. But did you know that the Duluth MNDOT office covers Roads from south of Pine City to Canada? We had a chance today to talk with Pat Houston from MN DOT about snow plowing, driver safety, and things we may not have known.
It's our first major snowfall of the season! At least it missed Thanksgiving by a few days. Now that the advisory has been upgraded to a Winter Storm Warning it's time to reconnect with our winter driving skills, slow it down and allow extra time for scraping, shoveling and warming the car. The Duluth Police Department has also given some suggestions on what roadway would be best to use during this storm and tips on clearing the snow before the cold weather hits. Yes, that's coming next!
Some time back the Duluth Police Department had launched something similar to the CodeRED system called iWatch. That was recently scrubbed and this new system is now in place. It is a high-speed emergency notification service you can sign up for that will alert you to emergencies and inclement weather via telephone calls, text messages, and emails. It's important to have and I encourage you to sign up today.
