Snow, better late than never

It was the kind of three-day blow that reminded area residents of what winter is usually like around here. Starting late Sunday, the snow piled up all this week, with heavy snow ending overnight into Wednesday but flurries expected into this weekend. Snowfall totals went above 20 inches in a swipe across northern Carlton County and up the shore of Lake Superior. Other areas had at least a foot of snow.
