We DID live through it, and that's why we tell the stories from Rochester to Albert Lea, from Chester, Iowa to St. Louis Park. And that's why I've gathered stories of many of the people that lived the storm. From a bit of inconvenience to no power for weeks.
One of the only saving graces about the cold is the return of one of Minnesota's favorite winter activities: downhill skiing (and tubing). If you're planning on taking a skiing adventure this winter, head to one of these top-rated ski hills. They've been voted Minnesota's Best!
