More than a month had passed between blizzards during the brutal winter of 1996-97 when Blizzard Gust made its unwelcome arrival March 4, 1997. According to Herald archives, 6.7 inches of snow from Blizzard Gust added to near-record accumulations, and the roof of the East Grand Forks Civic Center began to sag under the snow's weight.
