Episode Narrative This event began on December 31, 2010 and carried into January 1, 2011. As one blizzard event ended, hardly 14 hours passed and portions of the region were back in a second blizzard. These rare back-to-back blizzards ended up shutting down a good majority of events across the area. A second strong surface low pressure system lifted out of southwest Minnesota and tracked toward the Minnesota arrowhead, producing another swath of 6 to 8 inches of snow along with very gusty north winds. This resulted in blizzard conditions from New Years Eve into the 2011 New Year. Regional transportation means were shut down once again. Most of Interstate 94 remained closed from the first blizzard and all of Interstate 29 in North Dakota shut down. Most segments of U. S. Highway's 10 and 2 were shut down and the airports at Fargo and Grand Forks closed.
