This past weekend’s sunny skies and warm weather created many puddles for pedestrians to walk around or through. Large snow piles around town began reducing in size.
Central Minnesota saw record amounts of snow during the month of February. More than 16 inches of snow was recorded, compared to an average of about 7 inches. The record February snow in the area totaled more than 21 inches in 1971. This year’s February snowfall is listed as one of the top nine years of snow.
To help ensure that streets are driveable, snowplow drivers have worked hard to pile snow in parking lots and other areas. With the warm weather, some of those snow piles are melting.
Area residents are trying to guess when the hills might be gone and when they can start enjoying the spring weather.
Can you guess where each of the snow hills is located?
