Alice Findley uses the neon-pink National Weather Service snow gage to measure new snow at her home five miles north of Two Harbors. Findley reported 50 inches of new snow during the three-day snowstorm. While Weather Service officials say she may have been measuring some drifted snow in addition to new snow, they note that the North Shore highlands where Findley lives are a hotspot for heavy snow totals.
