  1. Well that storm brought the cold that is no joke here into International Falls. They got the forecast wrong though on the amount of snow it changed over pretty late as far as the forecast went, even though right about now we really can use that amount of snowpack for pipe insulation around your house. It’s a trick we use to keep heating and energy costs down, pretty much we throw snow against the house and it insulates saving a few bucks on the heat bill
