LOL if you people want to talk taxes and liberals, then come to Washington. North Dakota and Minnesota do not even come close. As far as North Dakota weather---Fargo---you get the four seasons. I grew up in Fargo and still have family there. I remember the tornado in I believe about 1957 that hit Fargo----check it out. I remember the blizzard of 1966 across the midwest that set records----check it out. Oh and do not forget all the floods---right Grand Forks???? I remember walking to school in 40 below zero weather. If you want weather-----you got it. What I also remember is how beautiful the skys are at various times of the year. If you do not have a good camera, get one. I wish you luck and the weather is too severe for me so I will never live there again. Oh and ask what the state bird is----it is alive and well in the summer. LOL PS---the people are the greatest!!!!!!!

t me guess...the state bird is the mosquito? I heard the same thing in WI. I'm sure there will be an abundance of them this summer from all the precipitation this winter. I will put up with them for the lightening storms without hesitation! Every place has it's down side...

It depends on how much sunspot activity there is. This past year there has been very little. When things are active sometimes lights are bright enough that we can see them from our yard in town, but if we drive out of town they're AWESOME!!!!

There are a couple different websites where you can sign up to be notified when there's a possibility of northern lights in your area. My email was hacked last summer so I have lost all my addresses, but maybe someone else will see this & let us both know.

One is at spaceweather.com, but there was another one I liked better.

North Dakota has the best thunderstorms and lightning I've ever seen. And the Northern Lights are amazing. I lived in Grand Forks 5 years. Moving back to ND this year (either GF or Fargo).
