March in like a Lion
True to the old saying, “March came in like a Lion,” — it really did.
Old Man Winter sprinkled the area with up to a foot of snow, making driving difficult and in some cases nearly impossible.
While he coated the city park on Madison Street with a nice snow cover, creating a winter scene on the basketball court, he wasn’t nice to drivers.
A car was located in a snowbank just a couple miles southeast of Minneota off Highway 68.
According to Sheriff Mark Mather, it wasn’t the only car in the ditch as his department received a variety of reports of cars in ditches and accidents caused by the bad weather.
On Tuesday morning, there were still some snow showers and Highway 68 between Minneota and Marshall was still snow-packed and traffic was going 45 miles per hour or less.
There were several power outages caused by heavy snow — some that lasted two hours or more!
So, now we’ll see.
Will March “come in like a Lion ... and Leave Like A Lamb?” as the old saying goes!
We’ll see about that!
