Episode Narrative A powerful winter storm moved from Missouri to lower Michigan on February 17. This system brought freezing rain initially during the early morning hours. Ice accumulations ranged from a quarter of an inch to as much as an inch. By mid-morning, precipitation changed to all snow and was accompanied by strong northwest winds gusting up to 30 to 35 mph. The combination of heavy snow and strong winds caused blizzard conditions generally along and east of a line from Cassville to Necedah Wisconsin. Highest snowfall accumulations of 10 to 15 inches occurred, with the greatest amount of 15.5 inches reported by a volunteer weather observer near Richland Center (Richland County). Other snowfall totals included 12.5 inches at Hillsboro (Vernon County) and 11.2 inches at Friendship (Adams County).
