Nobody who was in Minnesota in 1991 needs to be reminded; today’s the 25th anniversary of the Halloween Blizzard.
I’m not sure if the blizzard caught everyone by surprise, but it sure fooled me. I remember seeing the first snowflake that morning as I picked my mom up for the airport – she was back from Turkey – against a fairly pleasant-looking October sky.
By that evening, we were thoroughly stuck out at my in-laws, with a 3 month old, a 10 year old, my at-the-time wife and my mother.
For three days.
So yeah, I remember it.
On a more clinical note? I did not know that the Halloween blizzard was in part a consequence of the so-called “Perfect Storm” of Hollywood fame.
Enjoy the relatively warm day!
