    Twice big storms hit the Twin Cities with 14 and then 20 inches of snow, and because the jet stream goes north hard, curls around us at the very top NW corner of Minnesota we laugh while they get it! hahahaha!

    My expert opinion is that snow is not entirely from the sky. The video was taken from a sheltered area and it looks like they got 36"+ as a result of some drifting.

    Nice! He's got a couple of other time lapses of the blizzard from other angles as well. I like the way the clock keeps getting dug out as the snow continues.

    I like how the evergreen sags as the snow piles up.
