Episode Narrative Snow started falling across southeast Minnesota during the morning of the 20th and continued into the evening hours before ending. Once the snow ended, it was replaced by freezing drizzle which created a light coating of glaze on the fresh snow and exposed surfaces. The weight of the snow caused two roofs to collapse in Winona County. The debris blocked a railroad track and trapped numerous cattle, killing one. Snowfall totals generally ranged from 4 to 6 inches with ice accumulations around an eighth of an inch. The highest reported snow totals were 8 inches at Grand Meadow (Mower County) and 7.5 inches at Harmony (Fillmore County).
Event Narrative Heavy snow fell across the county, producing accumulations of 6 to 7 inches. A period of freezing drizzle occurred once the snow ended and produced up to an eighth of an inch of icing.
