How are the folks who live in and around Minot handling the snow this winter? I have in-laws and friends in Minot and boy unbelievable amounts. The official snow depth is being carried at around 40 inches....and I know the Walmart and Kmart and other stores are shut down until they get examine the structural integrity of the roofs there with all that snow. Fortunately it is not a wet heavy snow...but still that much snow regardless of water content is heavy. My wife's parents live in rural south central Ward county and they have been snow bound several days this winter which is unusual for them...10-15 foot drifts on their road to the house.

Good news is that after this latest clipper snow today (Tue) it will get milder and hopefully a dry stretch coming up....

Most of North Dakota set record snowfall for December 08...and the central part of the state is on record pace again. Just plain cold over here in the Red River Valley....-37 this Tuesday morning at the Grand Forks airport...-30 in town....and a co-worker who lives outside of Mayville along the Goose River has -42F.

I've been watching the temperature this morning of the Red River Valley in North Dakota - wow! Chicago's predicted cold for this week is tame by comparison.

This morning when I went to work at 530 am in Fargo it was -36 without the windchill. Its rediculous. This has been a winter for us to remember here in ND. Not sure of the temp at the moment..but the wind has really picked up and the visability is way down.
