A man buried when a snow fort collapsed around him has been rescued in St. Louis County. Hermantown police say the man’s son called 911 about 5 p.m. Sunday after his father became buried in the heavy snow. Police officers were first to arrive and were able to find the man under the snow and bring him to safety.
Two brothers from Anoka County decided to turn the record winter into a record of their own. The giant pile of snow in their yard was the inspiration to fulfill their boyhood dream — the biggest snow fort the Twin Cities has ever seen.
