Storm blankets Mercer County

3/31/11 (Thu)

By North Dakotans’ standards, it wasn’t terribly cold and wind speeds weren’t considered excessive--but did it ever snow, as a winter storm blanketed most of Mercer County in about 16 inches of heavy, wet snow beginning early last Tuesday and ending late that evening.

Precipitation began falling as rain the morning of Tuesday, March 22, and by mid-morning had turned to fluffy snowflakes that made travel conditions treacherous.
