Destructive snowstorm deja vu all over again’

After stymieing Santa with the Christmas blizzard of 2009, Mother Nature was at it again Easter weekend by hindering the Easter Bunny’s way with wind, rain and sleet that eventually turned into an all-out blizzard in some areas of the state.

As heavy rain on Good Friday morning turned to snow, the southwest and south-central portions of North Dakota were hit with wet, heavy snow that made for hazardous driving conditions and devastating damage to electric transmission lines.
