On this day in 1943...


Nov. 9, 1943 would mark the first day in a 79 day dry spell covering Beardsley, Canby, Dawson, and Marshall, Minn.

79 days without precipitation is the longest an area in Minnesota has ever gone without snow or rain, and the streak would come to an end Jan. 26, 1944.

The metro experienced a 27-day drought just three years ago, checking in as the longest in the metro in 30 years, but outstate Minnesota has seen much worse, with 60 years ago today beginning the Hindenburg of dry.
