Duluth received nearly two feet of snow through the weekend from a powerful blizzard that moved through the area according to the national weather service.

The city also set a new records for Nov. 30 with 0.99 inches of precipitation and 14.5 inches of snow, the NWS said. The old records were 0.62 inches of precipitation in 1873 and 14.5 inches of snow in 1985.


The snow left many with a big cleanup as I-35 was shut down for an extended period of time and roads were impassable.

Duluth holiday attraction Bentlyville even had to send out a request for help on Facebook asking for snowblower and plow help. 

While the storm caused work for many, some were still able to find the joy in the snowfall.

"When it snows it brings a lot of beauty to the northland. I wasn't expecting this much snow but I was just going to have fun with it" said Rachel Moe of Duluth.
