Winter Storm Hits Area

Wednesday, December 9, 2009

Dry, fluffy snow began falling over much of Northwest Iowa Monday night and continued through much of the day Tuesday. When strong winds and frigid temperatures blew in Tuesday afternoon, the combined effect created white-outs and near- blizzard conditions in many areas. Most area schools were either canceled for the day or dismissed early Tuesday, as the first winter storm of the season bore down on Cherokee and surrounding areas.

In the accompanying photo, a well-equipped pick-up in Cherokee heads off to plow snow.
