Top 10 longest 2-inch snow cover streak ends in metro

MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

We seem to have broken into about every top 10 list there is when it comes to horribly long and cold winters. Let's face it, the #WorstWinterEver was initiated in Minnesota. Well guess what... we made ANOTHER list.

The metro is now 7th on the all-time list for consecutive days with at least 2 inches of snow on the ground. For places like St. Cloud and Eau Claire, the streak continues...but with the rain today, the streak will likely end for the metro. Check out the lists below:

MSP airport has officially amassed 111 straight days with at least 2 inches of snow. If we added another week, we would be in 4th place all time.

Inside that streak though, we had 58 straight days with at least 8", 45 days with at least 12", and 10 straight days with at least 20".

Keep in mind though that much of the north and west metro had even higher numbers with still more than 8" of snow on the ground in some locations from Forest Lake to Maple Grove.

Meanwhile, St. Cloud and Eau Claire continue their streaks of 2"+ and they have breached the top 10 lists for both 8" and 10" amounts with Eau Claire now in 3rd place and St. Cloud in 2nd.  Considering it's almost April, I doubt either city will make it any higher.

    There's a big misconception about food vendors at the Minnesota State Fair. Many people think you can set up a booth, work 12 days and make a pile of cash. But it's not that easy. Aside from a lot of hard work, it also takes some luck.

    The Minnesota State Fair is adding 28 new foods to the already massive, artery-clogging list of 500 foods from 300 different vendors. New food include everything from a bacon-wrapped turkey leg and beer gelato to a shrimp dog and chocolate salami.
