Icy blast covers Hubbard County

Email News Alerts

Winter returned to Hubbard County over the weekend after a "spring rain" left an icy, dangerous mess for motorists and power crews.

"We had 33 power outages affecting 1024 people," said Itasca-Mantrap president Mike Monsrud. "Crews were out all weekend."


Rains compounded the misery, he said. Linemen got soaking wet.

"We use man-lift trucks so we didn't need to have people climbing icy poles," Monsrud said. "It was wet and sloppy out there."
