Being an ex-Minnesotan, we had all of that and then some, including other 
"regional weather specialties."  Often, in late winter when the soil was still 
frozen but had no snow cover, the winds in snow storms that occurred then would 
whip across the bare soil to produce SNIRT (SNow and dIRT), i.e., black snow.

Sensibly ensconced on the Left Coast where, often, the occupation of choice 
during some of the winter months is hammering together an ark . . . at least, 
living in Minnesota, we never had redwoods fall across the road to crush all 
the occupants in a car.
