My good friend Paul Boisvert, Publisher of the Gravelbourg Tribune, sent me some images of the big blizzard that struck the Prairies over the last 24 hours. Paul has lived in Gravelbourg most of his life, and he told me it was the worst storm he can remember in quite some time. Between 20 and 30cm of snow driven by 60-80km/h winds hit the area along with rapidly dropping temperatures.
