One of the worst fall blizzards most Minnesotans can remember took place two decades ago.

On the eve of Halloween in 1991, a low-pressure system charged hard up from Texas and dumped 20.4 inches on the Twin Cities in a single day.

More than 2 feet of flakes fell on the metro area when all was said and done, making it the snowiest October ever - or at least since records were kept in 1892.

The storm, which lasted through Nov. 2 and buried some rural areas under a full yard of flakes, was blamed for everything from cold feet to statewide job losses. But the dark clouds came at a joyous time for Minnesotans: The Twins had just won the World Series.

This week, you'll just have to use your imagination: expect a chance of drizzle and highs in the upper 40s.
We built a snowman and used a jack-a-lantern for it's head.  Several people stopped and took pictures.
The deer hunters had a holiday the following weekend as all the deer were herded up.

We were going to head up to the Cities to my parent's house with our almost 1 year old for her first Halloween. We had to deliver the stuff our neighbors ordered from a home decorating party, and the last one on our list talked us out of making the three hour journey. She made us some hot chocolate, and we sat and visited for over an hour. By the time we left, we could hardly see the gravel road's edges, and barely made it the 2 miles home. We were pretty happy that we didn't try to go see grandma and grandpa!

Yeah I was 8 years old. Got home from school and there was already a huge pile on the ground. Had to trick or treat in Sorels.

My mom went to work at the hospital that evening and the next shift couldn't make it in. She worked a double since the roads were to bad to get the next shift in.

Definitely a storm that will never be forgotten.

20 years ago I was 3 and I don't remeber the snow.  I do remeber the 9  pointer my dad shot that year, hanging in the garage.

I fish not because I regard fishing as being terribly important but because so many other concerns of man are equally unimportant and not nearly as much fun.

Is it hunting season yet?

Come to Calgary, you dont have to wait 20 years for a bad storm. Over night it could be -50 celcius and the next day +2. Great for people that have migraines
