What was awesome about this storm? It was a pleasant surprise to me! The previous time through the cycle, Dec 31 - Jan 1, much of the precipitation dissipated as it moved through WI and it was mainly rain. Same storm, majorly different outcomes! Click the link above and then click the linked precipitation amounts for the dates mentioned above to see what the storm looked like on radar last cycle.

If anyone is reading this, please visit the St. Cloud State University Post Storm Survey site and take the survey. It takes about two minutes. I believe to get the link to work you will need to copy and paste it into your browser!
