More Than a Foot of Snow Fell Overnight in Emmet County

Posted: Updated:

Many people in Emmet County woke up to an enormous amount of snow this morning.

The heaviest hit area is near Stutsmanville, that's 10 miles North of Harbor Springs.

More than a foot of snow fell overnight in some areas.

The Pleasantville EZ Mart says they have been seeing more than the usual number of customers today. The manager says they are even running out of a few grocery items like water, chips and hand warmers because many people don't want to make the trip to the grocery store.

Harbor Springs is only a few miles away and they received about 5 inches of snow, compared to the 14 inches in Stutsmanville.

"The people that live here are use to it, it's the people that are vacationing that are a little shocked," says Billie Powrozek, Pleasantville EZ Mart manager.

9&10's Katie Boomgaard and photojournalist Jeff Blevins have more details about this surprising snowfall.
