Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- Imagine those air travelers who left sub zero temps of the valley a few days ago, for the summer sun down south, only to return home to a blizzard. Their cars buried by our storm.
The great part about our winter is leaving it, the bad part is returning home to this.
"And I turned the corner and."
Shana Wiley hadn't returned to her native North Dakota for awhile. This is likely why. After 24-hours of flight delays and cancellations, she finally arrived in Fargo, to find her car at the airport buried beneath a giant drift, courtesy of Sunday's storm.
Wiley: "Last year was so mild, but this year is a reminder of what it is really like to live up here."
NDSU's Assistant BB coach Jared Swanson along with stranded players returned to town, only to have a stranger about to catch a flight stop and help push him out of the lot.
Swanson: "It is Fargo, right, we knew there would be snow here and cold, nothing new for those of us who have been here for awhile."
Scot Erickson of Fergus Falls and family left Texas, returning home to this.
Erickson: "We have traveled from here in the winter before so we are used to it."
Stephanie Robinson's sunny cruise she came back from sure sounds better than this. A wall of snow behind her car.
Robinson: "I am hoping to gun it, if not i have a shovel and i will dig myself out."
For many today, returning home was a relief. So many flights had been postponed or canceled, yet another night in a hotel. But this is home, and most were happy to return, even to this.
