Don’t worry. It’s not today! We’re talking about the Armistice Day Blizzard. This monster storm took place in the Midwest region of the United States on 11 November (Armistice Day) and 12 November 1940.
The intense early-season “Panhandle hook“ winter storm cut a 1,000-mile-wide (1600 km) path through the middle of the country from Kansas to Michigan. The storm hit Minnesota especially hard.
