Minneapolis Snow Storm – January 23 208

So the big snow storm on January 23 2018 has come and gone and has left its mark throughout Minneapolis.  If you are wondering how much snow you got, below is a list of the official snow recordings throughout the metro…

  • Minneapolis: 9.5”
  • Paul: 9.8”
  • MSP Airport: 12.4”
  • Prior Lake: 16.5”
  • Chanhassen: 11.0″ 
  • White Bear Lake: 10.0″ 
  • Edina: 8.0″
  • Maple Grove: 5.8″
  • Rogers: 2.5″ 
  • Owatonna: 17.0″ 
  • Cannon Falls: 13.5″ 
  • Burnsville: 13.3″
  • Stillwater: 11.0″

The snowstorm also left thousands of people stranded at the airport.  According to the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, the snow storm closed all runways for a few hours and had to cancel over 500 flights.

For us Minnesotans, heavy snowfall isn’t uncommon and yes we do brave the elements and jump in our cars to get where we are going.  Well, during the snowfall 184 of us were involved in a crash and 298 of us ended up spinning out and needing assistance.

But that’s a few days out now and MNDOT has done a great job at clearing the roads for us.  Until the next snow storm, drive safe and thank a plow truck driver.
