Snowiest Christmas in 30 years gets Wild Mountain and others excited in Minnesota

‘Tis the season for giant winter storms apparently. The east coast and mid-Atlantic states were slammed last week, and it looks like another significant storm system is expected to set in on Wednesday (tomorrow) and affect the middle/northern parts of our nation the most. Folks in Minnesota are expecting at least a foot of snow tomorrow, and meteorologist Paul Douglas said: “It’s not definite yet, but it has an uncanny resemblance to the East Coast storm last Saturday. I want to see one to two more computer runs, but this could be the snowiest Christmas for Minnesota in 30 years.”

No doubt the good folks at Wild Mountain ski area are hopping up and down with excitement. If the storm does indeed start tomorrow, it’s set to last all throughout Christmas weekend.
