DULUTH, Minn. (AP) -- Plunging temperatures in Minnesota are making snow removal a bit tricky as fluffy precipitation turns to rock hard ice-- and along the state's north shore, there's a lot of snow to remove. A National Weather Service observer recorded 42 inches of snow just north of Two Harbors.
City crews in Duluth scrambled to clear streets before the deep freeze Thursday. Schools are canceling classes again in Duluth, Superior, Wis., and other cities in the region.
Forecasters expect daytime temperature Friday will reach into the single digits above zero, but just 4 below on Saturday.
Spotter Alice Findley uses a neon pink yardstick to measure the snow for the weather service. She measured 42 inches as a result of this week's snows. Findley lives on a big hill where the lake effect usually delivers a bit more snow. Findley tells the Duluth News Tribune she took several measurements around her yard and the snow was deeper than her yardstick in all locations.
