Early season storm blankets Northland
When Cloquet's Amber Nichols headed outside with her measuring tape Wednesday morning, it showed 15 inches of snow in her back yard ... and the National Weather Service in Duluth was predicting an additional eight to 12 inches more on top of that.
Cloquet Street Supervisor Les Peterson said the winter storm was keeping his crews busy.
"Our plows came out at 4 a.m.," Peterson said 12 hours later. "Of course, the streets looked better at 4 a.m. than they do now."
