Answer: 16″ in Estherville.¬†Other storm reports across the region were¬†12″ at Emmetsburg and Logan, 13″ at Algona, 13.5″ at Britt, 14.3″ at Onawa, 15″ at Sac City and Storm Lake. All though 16″ might not seem like a lot of snow, 80 mph winds created white out conditions and 20′ drifts. Fifteen people died as a result of the storm and more than 100,000 livestock perished.

    Estherville, my new hometown. I moved here from Independence after losing my husband. No big snows here so far this winter, but it sure has been cold!
