The Red River Valley blizzard of March 15, 1941, was the storm of the century-- a huge system that swept down from Alaska across the prairies, striking Saskatchewan, Manitoba, North Dakota and Minnesota in a devastating blow. The wind had been gusting from the south at Grafton when the blizzard stormed into the area at eight o'clock Saturday night. The Walsh County Record described its arrival: 'The wind switched from the south to the north in the time it could take to throw a switch. Snow and dust, lashed by the thundering wind that resembled a tornado in its intensity, choked to death many victims or caused them to drop exhausted, far from their intended paths, and there to slowly freeze to death as the snow swept in a grave-like sound over their bodies.' (From the book's back cover)
