Let It Snow
Talk about your snow days! The Upper Midwest was hit with a major snow storm this past weekend, delaying or canceling over 1,700 flights and closing highways across that nearly 1,500-mile-wide stretch of the country. The snow even caused the roof of the Metrodome, a football stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota, to collapse. Minneapolis received 17.1 inches of snow, the fifth greatest snowstorm for that city (since they started being recorded in 1875). The record for that region is 2 feet 4.4 inches, during the Halloween blizzard of 1991. How much more snow fell in 1991 than over the weekend?
