Episode Narrative A powerful winter storm moved from Kansas to the lower Great Lakes, producing a combination of freezing rain, sleet and heavy snow, which virtually paralyzed northeast Iowa. Widespread power outages and tree damage were caused by ice accumulations of 1 to 2 inches. Especially hard hit were locations from around Oelwein (Fayette County) to New Hampton (Chicksaw County) to Osage (Mitchell County). Several roads had downed power lines across them and in fact, thousands of power poles were downed due to ice. Heavy snow also accompanied the storm. Accumulations ranged from 6 to 18 inches, with highest totals near the Minnesota-Iowa border. Some of the highest totals included 18.8 inches near Decorah (Winneshiek County) and 16.4 inches at Dorchester (Allamakee County). Thousands of people were without power for several days and emergency shelters were provided to accomodate those needing assistance. Travel was dangerous or impossible throughout northeast Iowa.
