March 14, 1870

March 14, 2008

At least 16 inches of snow fall from March 14 to 16, leading to the first use of the term “blizzard” by the Estherville, Iowa, newspaper, the Vindicator.

Thanks to Palma Wright’s, Louis Lauer’s and Lynn Johnson’s classes at Moorhead Public Schools for the research on March’s Day in History.

Thanks also to Minnesota’s Learn and Serve America Service Learning Program for their help.
