It wasn't the Halloween blizzard of 1991, but the October 20 snowstorm that smacked Minnesota goes down as one of the biggest to ever hit the Twin Cities this early in the season.
As meteorologist Sven Sundgaard noted, it's the biggest snowstorm this early ever for the metro.
MSP Airport officially tallied 7.4 inches of snow at 7 p.m., while suburbs just to the south of the airport were rocked with 8-9 inches. The statewide leader as of this writing is the town of Sedan (near Glenwood), which measured an incredible 10.8 inches.

As you can see, there aren't many north metro suburbs in the higher range of snowfall totals. That's because the heaviest band of snow set up on the south side of the Twin Cities. Still, 4-5 inches accumulated in the northern 'burbs.
