The Stearns History Museum announces the release of "The Great Storm: Reminiscences of the Armistice Day Blizzard" CD. Local film maker Mark Krauel interviewed several people who experienced the horrific Armistice Day blizzard Nov. 11, 1940.
The CD, which is audio only, contains these firsthand accounts of the surprise blizzard that left 59 people dead. Back in the days before storms could be predicted, this blizzard caught people by surprise on an unseasonably warm and pleasant autumn day. The CD features memories from farmers, hunters, housewives and students. The book is available for sale at the Stearns History Museum, 235-33rd Ave. S., St. Cloud, for $14.95.
