On This Day in Weather History

ON THIS DATE IN HISTORY:
In 1921, the Columbia Gorge ice storm came to an end. In Oregon,
54 inches of snow, sleet, and glaze blocked the Columbia River
Highway at the Dalles. All transportation between Walla Walla,
Washington, and Portland, Oregon, was halted.
In 1957, 19 inches of snow covered the ground at Cresco, Iowa, a
record November snow depth for the state.
In 1981, an unusually early snowstorm affected the Twin Cities
of Minnesota, with as much as a foot of snow reported. The weight
of the heavy snow caused the newly inflated fabric of the Metrodome
to collapse and rip.
