Where does this winter rank?
Forgive me for bringing up our readers' least favorite topic these days - snow.
However, I've heard this called one of the worst winters in recent memory. While that is certainly true, I wonder where it stands in area's history.
For our region, is it among the top 10 worst winters, top 25, top 50? Keep in mind, we have endured more than 145 winters in our county. And, of course, one might ask how we define "worst."
Some may look at last year's heavy, wet, April snow and consider it worse than what we've seen thus far this year.
In the next several days, I intend to do some research and am inviting the public to offer their memories and opinions. The question is: "What is the worst winter you endured in the Cottonwood County area?" Also, feel free to share any stories you may have about past winters (even this one).
