Just two days after spring officially began, a foot of snow socked most of Crawford County, beginning Sunday and continuing into Monday.
Prairie du Chien received 13 inches of snow as of 7 a.m. Monday, according to the reports from the National Weather Service of La Crosse. Lynxville and Steuben both received 10 inches. Other regional snowfall totals, as of Monday morning, included: Fennimore, 15; Marquette, 12; Lancaster, 11; Monona, 10.8; De Soto, 9.8; Gays Mills, 8.8; La Crosse, 5.0; Volga, 3.3; Elkader, 1.8; Cassville, 1.5; and Guttenberg, 0.7. The contrast of snowfall amounts demonstrated the narrow band of locally higher amounts in certain communities.
The snow was expected to taper off by mid-morning Monday.
