Episode Narrative A powerful late season winter storm hit northwestern Wisconsin, producing heavy wet snow. There were localized blizzard conditions along the south shore and head of Lake Superior. Six to 14 inches of snow fell, with the heaviest amounts from Siren to Spooner. Four inches or less fell from Phillips and points south. Wind gusts over 40 mph were common across much of northwestern Wisconsin, causing numerous power outages from falling trees. Approximately 500 trees were blown down in Bayfield County in the town of Bell. Waves were 15 feet or more on Lake Superior. Many schools and businesses were closed on the 11th.
