5 PM = 0" / 11 AM = 11"
Minneapolis schools very rarely shut down due to snow. However, today was a different story. On Sunday evening, March 12, at 5:00 PM, there was no snow on the ground, and no snow falling from the sky. Monday morning, March 13, at 11:00 AM there was approximately 11 inches of snow covering our back yard and snow was still falling from the sky! There are some places were the drifts are over two feet deep! Needless to say, all schools are closed and many kids are happy - especially three kids I know who don't go to school anyway. Of course, everyone has had enough of it already and now we're inside drinking hot chocolate.
