A bicyclist rides on fresh snow while biking along Lake Harriet Tuesday in Minneapolis.

A winter storm shouldered its way into the record books Tuesday while dumping 6 to 8 inches of heavy snow across the Twin Cities, burying curbs, garden hoses and whatever was left of fall.

The precipitation tapered off Tuesday night after shattering the previous record for Oct. 20 of 3 inches, set in 1916, and nearly besting the all-time snowiest October day in the Twin Cities.

As flurries turned to a full-on storm, National Weather Service meteorologist Brent Hewett had simple advice: "Have a shovel" at the ready.
