Deer River area businesses and residents not only had eight or nine inches of snow to deal with from the two-day snowfall on Feb. 20 and Feb. 21, but then the removal work had to be taken care of again with the strong winds creating troublesome drifts. Photo by Louise H. McGregor

Winter weather has become a tiring subject for residents in the northland, but that doesn’t stop the snow or cold from happening nor does it change the weather pattern.

The recent snow storm that arrived on Feb. 20 and lasted until Feb. 21 left Deer River and the surrounding areas blanketed with between eight to nine inches of snow.

As of 9 a.m. on Feb. 21, the totals reported to the National Weather Service in Duluth listed snowfall in Bigfork at nine inches and in Grand Rapids at eight inches.

The Deer River City crew, area residents and businesses had just gotten the snow cleaned up from the Feb. 17 snowstorm that left the area blanketed with about seven inches of snow.
