Armistice Day Blizzard – 75 Years Ago!

Filed under: Item of the Day — Lori Williamson @ 12:01 am

On November 11, 1940, one of the largest, most destructive blizzards on record hit Minnesota. It stranded hunters on the Mississippi River in Minnesota and 145 deaths were blamed on the storm across the Upper Midwest. Today’s Item of the Day are a few memorable images from that event.
