The switch from spring back into winter was a violent one all the way around, and weather activity was capped by a very offensive blizzard Saturday. Six inches of snow fell and blew around in the Algona area, while larger amounts were reported in the county. State and county road crews were kept busy by a wind that insisted on drifting the white stuff, and one death was attributed to the storm. East and west roads were still in bad shape in some areas Monday morning, but calm weather gave crews "a chance to get the roads all clear. Temperature readings varied from a very balmy 43 abovq Tuesday to a nibpy 12 below reading late Monday night. Warmer weather is on tap soon, according to the weather bureau.
