Winter weather can be brutal on a home, especially in Minneapolis. This was all too clear during a recent winter storm, which threatened to bury commuters and homes and basically caused one huge headache for residents. An article from Twincities.com goes into more detail about the possible effects of such a storm:
Get ready, Twin Cities: What could be one of the largest April snowstorms on record is headed your way.
A wintry mix of precipitation Thursday afternoon is expected to turn over to heavy snow after midnight Thursday, leaving as much as a foot in the Twin Cities by midmorning Friday.
“The greatest impact will be the Friday morning commute,” said Dan Effertz, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in Chanhassen. “We’ll probably be having heavy snow at that time, say an inch an hour from 4 or 5 in the morning up to about 9 o’clock.”
Already this season, the Twin Cities have seen 63 inches of snow — more than the 30-year average of 54.4 inches.
