Episode Narrative A powerful winter storm moved from Missouri to lower Michigan on February 17. This system brought freezing rain initially to parts of northeast Iowa during the early morning hours. Ice accumulations ranged from a quarter to a half of an inch. A heavy glazing of ice on power lines caused power outages in Decorah (Winneshiek County). By mid-morning, precipitation changed to all snow and was accompanied by strong northwest winds gusting up to 30 to 35 mph. Snowfall accumulations between 4 and 8 inches occurred in areas near the Mississippi River. Highest snowfall totals from volunteer weather observers included 7.6 inches and 6.0 inches respectively in and just southeast of Elkader (Clayton County).
