This past weekend’s sunny skies and warm weather created many puddles for pedestrians to walk around or through. Large snow piles around town began reducing in size.
Central Minnesota saw record amounts of snow during the month of February. More than 16 inches of snow was recorded, compared to an average of about 7 inches. The record February snow in the area totaled more than 21 inches in 1971. This year’s February snowfall is listed as one of the top nine years of snow.
