Thing of the past in St Paul: In the last two years, we've had two of the top three single-day December snowfalls

Twin Cities have third largest December single-day snowfall - TwinCities.com
The storm Sunday, Dec. 9, dumped 10.5 inches of snow at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, the official observation point for Twin Cities. That was a record for the day and the third largest single-day December snowfall on record for the metro -- behind the 12 inches that fell Dec. 28, 1992, and the 16.3 inches that fell Dec. 11, 2010.

It meant more than 150 flights canceled at the airport, commutes times that doubled and even tripled in some cases and hundreds of cars towed during snow emergencies.
