On This Date in Minnesota History: April 5

April 5, 1933 - One of the greatest April snowstorms in Minnesota began on this date. “The old Pigeon River Bridge crossing in Cook County saw 28 inches in one day from that storm. This still stands as the 24 hour state record for snowfall in April. Two Harbors in Lake County saw 17 inches of snow from the 1933 storm.”
