If some wonder why it seems as if Wadena and surrounding areas have been getting more winter storms lately, they can thank weather patterns that are invading us from staging points in Canada.


The latest major winter system to affect the area was one on March 9-10, as of press time. Senior Meteorologist Bob Smerbeck of AccuWeather said March 9 saw slightly less than 3 inches of snow in the Wadena area, part of which may have turned to ice as temperatures fell the next day.
