MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Monday marks the 20th anniversary of the famous Halloween Blizzard.

The snow started falling on Thursday, and didn’t stop for more than 65 hours.

Mark Seeley is a climatologist at the University of Minnesota.

“When all was said and done it was historic because it was so wide spread. You know, we had 28.5 in the Twin Cities. Right here on the St. Paul campus, 29.5 inches of snow. Duluth had three feet,” he said.

Seeley also said the rate of snow fall was astonishing, with three inches of snow falling in one hour at times, which is more like a Rocky Mountain snow, than a Minnesota variety.
