I wish I was in North Dakota. I'm a major winter type.

I'm so over it. I'm ready to move on from North Dakota. I've been here for seven years and it hasn't really grown on me. I've had the same job since moving here and I will miss the pay and perks, but this six months of being pretty much trapped indoors sucks the life out of you.

Lots to do further east in the Northwoods in winter as you have plenty of trails over there. Not as much in the way of public land or trails in North Dakota. North Shore and Lake Superior Snowbelt are great in the winter so many trails to explore, including silent sports trails where you don't need a snowmobile.

I've never been a snow person. I will say that it's been an interesting adventure. I kind of wonder if it would have turned out different if I moved to the Twin Cities or Omaha. It's not all bad it was the best thing that I did financially. I'll be leaving here debt free with a new paid for truck and a decent cushion to rest easy on where I might blow to next. I'm thinking by the summer of 2020 that i'll be rambling out.

North Dakota is cold? Who could have foreseen that?

Cold doesn't bother me nearly as much as darkness and cloudiness. I like daylight. This is why I don't live in Iceland or Alaska. Winter is often beautiful but I need sunshine.

l was in Minot and Williston from 2/28 - 3/3. Holy crap did my fingers hurt through my gloves after being outside for any longer than a minute. Took a good 10 minute for them to defrost indoors. (they really did hurt) I'm almost scared to know what the wind chill was around 6 AM on those days.

With wind chill values below -20F I would recommend two pairs of insulated gloves if possible.

I live in NE Wyoming -- have for nearly 50 years -- and the last couple months seem like the coldest winter yet. It might just be because I'm getting old, however.

I said something the other night about skiing, and my wife said the ski resorts are probably hurting this season and I wouldn't want to be in the cold. I said no, when it got way below zero on the ski slopes I liked it, because that might mean short lift lines.

I also lived in Alaska for a few years before moving here, and it was never too cold to crank up the snowmobiles and head out. I really think it's my age (73). My daughter and ex-wife both live in Arizona now. I never thought I'd want to live down there, as I like cool summers and have never suffered the cold winters much, but this year just seems horrible.

It might also have a little to do with my "retirement job" now as a home inspector. Most of my inspections are either exterior ones or exterior and interior for homes without heat. It takes more time climbing over snow drifts, navigating ice, etc., and it seems like it takes MUCH longer to do them. I don't mind the work in the summer, but this winter? BRRRRRRRRRRR!

If I could go to ND and make good money for a winter or two, I'd give it a try, but I don't make much money inspecting homes. I've always had office jobs before, seldom outside for long. This winter is making up for it.
