What's your favorite thing to do when it snows like it did Monday in Southeast Minnesota? Whatever it is, Rochester's Mohammed Aljnabi's snow day activity beats it.

Don't believe me? Hit play.

Is that not the most delicious snow activity? The sound of the grilling, the look of the kebabs...you can almost capture the aroma and taste the tender juicy meat. ((le sigh))

So good.

There's sure to be at least two more blizzards before it is really spring, so go ahead, steal the idea.

And what's more, Mohammed's snow day activity is literally one of the Top Five Things To Do On A Minnesota March Snow Day (which I totally did not make after I saw the video). 

5 Of the Best Things To Do On A Minnesota March Snow Day

There's probably two more snow-days before it is really spring, so here's how to make the most of them.

By the way, Monday, March 15, 2021's snow set a record!

Minnesota State Patrol

Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - The snowfall reports are still coming in after Monday’s record-breaking winter storm.

In the late afternoon, the National Weather Service (NWS) reported 5.5 inches of wet and heavy snow had fallen at the Rochester Airport, which easily broke the previous snowfall record of 2.1 inches for March 15th, which was set in 1998...the NWS received a report just after 5 PM of 9.3 inches on the southwest edge of Rochester.

Predmore, just southeast of Rochester reported 8.5 inches of snow, as did Preston and Spring Valley. 8 inches of snow was reported in Albert Lea, while Kasson and Byron reported receiving about 7.5 inches. (Keep Reading to find out how many crashes happened because of the blizzard.)
