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 a devastating blow. 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 mound over their bodies.
