First winter storm bears down on Duluth, Iron Range

Winter Storm, Hibbing, MN, Dec. 2, 2013

Snow falls Monday, Dec. 2, 2013 in Hibbing, Minnesota at the start of the first winter storm of the season. On a side note, the color of the sky during a Minnesota snow storm would make a good neutral color for a living room or hallway.

A three-day winter storm is underway here in northern Minnesota. That sounds worse than it is. It will snow gently but steadily for three days, resulting in predicted snow totals of about a foot. But the plow drivers will be out. These are weekdays, so relatively little overtime is required.

Track the storm if you like. Hope for a snow day if you are foolish. People would have liked the lake ice to thicken up a bit more before such an event. This much snow on six inches of ice makes for a soupy lake surface. Bad for ice fishing. Not that this will stop anyone. Just something to talk about. Like the first winter storm of 2013-2014.
