I hope all of the veterans had a great Veteran's Day on Wednesday. Temperatures were 15 to 20 degrees above normal! Things certainly were nothing like what the state experienced during the Great Armistice Day Blizzard of 1940.
There were 49 people killed in Minnesota alone. Over 150 people were killed across the Midwest. This weekend, temperatures will be about 10 degrees above average. Have a great weekend.
In 1947 a snowstorm moved through Minnesota with high winds. It caused a million dollars in damage!
Wind Chill Advisories are issued for cold temperatures and winds, with wind chill temperatures computed to be 25-below or less for at least 3 hours. Exposure to this combination of strong winds and low temperatures without protective clothing can lead to frostbite or death.
