It was one for the record books for a lot of cities in the Midwest...November 11th, 1911! It's been more than a hundred years now since The Great Blue Norther set record highs and lows, in the same cities in a few cases. In the Quad Cities the temperaure plummeted from the mid 70s to the mid teens by midnight...with some rain and snow mixed in for good measure. The big storm even spawned a tornado just West of Davenport, IA! If you're into this sort of thing check out the storm on Wikipedia!
