Winter won’t go quietly in lakes area


Winter has returned. 

A week after sunny skies and above normal temperatures that peaked close to 50 degrees melted ice and snow, a slow moving storm late Sunday and early Monday brought in replacements.

Brainerd, at the northern edge of the system, got about 5.5 inches of snowfall. In southern Minnesota, including the Twin Cities, there were numerous reports of more than a foot of snow, topping out at 19 inches in Madison in Lac Qui Parle County.

After graduating high school in 2004, I attended Central Lakes College in Staples, MN for 2 years where I got a diploma in Communication Art and Design. I then transfered up to Bemidji State University in, you guessed it, Bemidji, MN. In the spring of 2009, I graduated from BSU. Then in the fall of 2009 I got a job at Echo Publishing, a sister company to the Brainerd Dispatch.
