Shovel in a backyard Although we know you want to, because we do too, don't pack away your shovels just yet.

Don't put that shovel away just yet!

According to the Minnesota DNR, Historic April Snowstorms | Minnesota DNR, Minnesota is known to have historic snow fall and blizzards leading into April. The top eleven largest April Snowstorms in the Twin Cities areas from 1891-2019 are as followed:

#1 April 13-16, 2018, 15.8 inches

#2 April 14, 1983, 13.6 inches

We're quite astonished by those numbers too.

however, like we suggested, don't pack away the shovels just yet. Although we've had a nice warm up towards the end of this March, there is still a chance of blizzards and snowfall to come. 

We recommend using these tips from the CDC for preparations if you have not done so yet. Preparing for a Winter Storm|Winter Weather (cdc.gov)
