The first storm referred to as a blizzard. March 14th-16th... An editor at the "Dakota Republican" in Vermillion, SD, described the storm. "A violent snowstorm driven by a heavy (northwesterly) wind, commenced about 12 o'clock last Sunday night (12th) and continued three whole days and nights. The weather was intensely cold and the heavy fall flying before a furious wind - blowing as only prairie winds can blow - rendered travelling exceedingly uncomfortable and dangerous, if not almost impossible (issue of March 17, 1820)."
