Thanks to the fire department, a blizzard didn't stop this prom

A blizzard on prom night? Pretty rare, but unfortunately for teenagers in Minnesota on Saturday night, a reality. The historic blizzard saw snow falling at 1 to 2 inches per hour and 50-mph wind gusts creating whiteout conditions. Flights were grounded. It’s a mess.

Now imagine trying to celebrate your special night in formalwear in that weather. Oh, and don’t forget those photos taken in parents front lawns or at the local park. Pretty much not happening.

Fortunately for kids in Forest Lake, Minnesota, their local fire department stepped in with a unique solution. They opened the doors of the fire station for local teens to take their prom photos.
