Lake Effect Snow Leaves A Mess in Morgan Park

This afternoon, people were still digging out their cars, plowing the sidewalks, and shoveling out driveways.

DULUTH, Minn. – Snow in March isn’t out of the question here in the Northland, but the powder some folks woke up to this morning might have been one of the strangest of the season so far.

While many areas of the Northland scraped through yesterday’s winter storm with just a dusting or even a few inches, lake effect snow from continuous winds out of the northeast brought reports of 13 inches in Morgan Park.

This afternoon, people were still digging out their cars, plowing the sidewalks, and shoveling out driveways.

“Usually it’s the south shore that gets it. But when it blows right up the river we get this,” said Bill Krotzer, who lives in Morgan Park.

“It’s frustrating,” said Joyce Arnett, who was digging out her car Monday afternoon. “I had a doctor’s appointment this morning and I couldn’t go. I didn’t have time to dig out and go.”

“We’ve had a couple times where we had an inch or two, maybe three at most, but the whole year we haven’t had as much as we just got last night,” said John Podgornik, as he shoveled snow from his driveway.

Just south in Gary New Duluth, 11 inches of snowfall was recorded overnight.
