The infamous 26-inch halloween blizzard pummels Minneapolis, while Roseville gets 30 inches and Duluth receives nearly 37.

The death toll rises above twenty after the four-day long snowfall, while 100 more are injured, and it is believed to be the most snow to accumulate across eastern Minnesota in the state's history.

The blizzard closed over 900 businesses, while also closing the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus, which didn't happen again until 19 years later.

$100 million in damages are reported across the region, and the snowfall is still the most in a single storm in Twin Cities history.
