Hint of spring buried
Just when we thought spring might finally arrive, a snowstorm early Tuesday morning buried roads, driveways and vehicles under several inches of snow.
Douglas County was under a winter storm warning until 7 a.m. Wednesday and up to 11 inches of accumulation was in the forecast.
The heavy snow closed schools in Alexandria, Osakis and Brandon-Evansville on Tuesday.
Spring officially arrives on the calendar at 11:57 a.m. tomorrow, Thursday.
