Episode Narrative A major spring storm system, that slowly passed through the region, dropped more than a foot of snow in some locations across far northern Wisconsin. Temperatures near freezing brought snow that easily stuck to trees and power lines. Trees falling onto power lines caused power outages for about 5,000 customers in parts of Vilas County, Oneida County and Forest County.

Some of the highest snowfall totals included 13.6 inches at Conover (Vilas Co.), 13.1 inches at Hiles (Forest Co.), 12.0 inches at Three Lakes (Oneida Co.), 11.7 inches at Eagle River (Vilas Co.), 11.0 inches near Argonne (Forest Co.), 10.6 inches near Laona (Forest Co.) and near Alvin (Forest Co.), 10.4 inches at Long Lake (Florence Co.), 10.1 inches at Rhinelander (Oneida Co.) and 10.0 inches at Winchester (Vilas Co.).
