Winter roars in, people dig out
More than 2 feet falls in county
December 6, 2019
The double whammy of winter storms on either side of Thanksgiving Day will surely be remembered by those who endured it. Some were lucky enough to be nestled with friends and family for what turned out to be a weeklong holiday for school kids. Others dealt with trying to dig themselves out and get to work or attend to other essential business as the blizzard that hit Saturday and into Sunday dropped 13 to 20 inches on Carlton County. On Tuesday and Wednesday, Nov. 26-27, the first significant snowfall hit the region as about 8 inches piled up in time to snarl Thanksgiving travel plans.
