For those who are too young to remember and/or didn’t live around here 20 years ago, Duluth experienced one of the craziest blizzards in history in 1991. The Halloween Megastorm was part of, or at least coincided with, what became known as The Perfect Storm, “a nor’easter that absorbed Hurricane Grace and ultimately evolved into a small hurricane late in its life cycle.”
What we experienced in Minnesota was a blizzard that lasted from Oct. 31 to Nov. 3 and dumped 36.9 inches of snow on Duluth. The entire city pretty much shut down for that period of time. Later that month, another blizzard cycled through the area, establishing the current record for the most snowfall in any month: a total of 50.1 inches.
