    It was a good weekend to finish up yard work.  The neighbor's oak tree dumped a bunch more leaves Fri/Sat, so I raked them and bagged them.  I use most to protect some plants and then mulch up the rest for the compost.  I mowed for the last time Saturday.  I was really just trying to run out the little bit of gas in the tank, but it actually made a difference so the lawn has still been growing over the last couple weeks.

    It almost seemed as if the grass was trying to make up for lost time after not growing for a month plus during the summer/early fall.

    Had 45-50mph wind gusts yesterday afternoon, and that took care of any leaves that were left on trees other than oaks and sycamores.  

  2. For this area I can't see MLI ever breaking their all-time max of 111.  

    I think the biggest snow event at MLI is around 18", so I guess a 2 footer is possible if given the right scenario.  Would be pretty hard to do better than that without the benefit of lake moisture out this way.

    For some reason it's only letting me attach one pic at a time so guess I'll make separate posts lol

    Northern red oak is finally starting to turn red, but waay behind.

    And a follow up to last Saturday.  In just 6 days it really put on a show.  The oaks around the area look very nice now after getting off to a very slow/late start for fall color.

    Today marks the 30th anniversary of the standard bearer against which all other winter storms in Minnesota are compared against. The 1991 Halloween Blizzard produced 28.4” of snow in Minneapolis and over 36” in Duluth. I’m sure @Brian Dhas some good memories of this one.

    Hard to find much on the midwest Halloween '91 storm, as most of the attention was on the one out east at the same time.

    Here's about all I can find, but you can see satellite loops, regional radar, and surface maps from Oct 30/ Oct 31/ Nov 1.  

    34:25 min mark for Oct 30th

    49:20 min mark for Oct 31st

    1:07:10 hour/min mark for Nov 1st- the peak of the Midwest blizzard.

    That was a great read.  I remember that one, have family in southwest IA (near Shenendoah) that were in on that devastating ice storm.  Definitely one for the ages from MSP to Duluth.  It's pretty crazy how "the perfect storm" out east happened at the same time.
