DEPEW, N.Y. - At this point, who wouldn’t love to see Old Man Winter hauled off in handcuffs? The Depew Police Department in upstate New York took a jab at the country’s prolonged winter horror with a humorous post on Friday, April 6, reading “winter” a cheeky version of its Miranda rights. The post is accompanied with Punxsutawney Phil, the groundhog whose shadow is meant to herald the end of winter, as the subject of a “Wanted” poster.
FARGO--Roads in and around the Fargo metro are causing headaches during the morning commute Tuesday, April 3.
FARGO-Winter isn’t ready to loosen its icy grip on the region. Not just yet. The Fargo-Moorhead area will see a brief respite after about four inches of snow fell overnight Thursday, March 29, but then another snowfall will barrel through, with heavy accumulations and blizzard conditions likely.
There must be something in the hotdish. Or maybe it’s the sunsets. Whatever it is, the effect is clear. Fargo was named the sixth happiest city in the United States by the website WalletHub .
Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., didn’t hesitate much when asked which woman she would like to see next run for president. “I’m gonna stick with the Midwest,” Duckworth said. “I’m going to have to say Amy Klobuchar, I guess.”
Imagine for a moment that you’re Earle Sarles, adjutant general of the North Dakota National Guard, on July 17, 1934. The governor, William “Wild Bill” Langer, had declared martial law and was using the National Guard to, in effect, rule North Dakota by force. Langer barricaded himself in the governor’s mansion after the state’s supreme court upheld a decision that would remove him from office. He simply refused to leave office.
If you had to boil down all of the business activity in the F-M Metro this past year into two words, here are a couple to consider: Hustle. Bustle.
A coating of ice and wet slush is complicating travel in the Red River Valley on Wednesday morning, Dec. 13. The National Weather Service in Grand Forks reports freezing drizzle and snow throughout an area from the Canada border to the South Dakota border, as well as western central Minnesota. High winds in the Fargo area could also complicate travel.
Yesterday's winter storm certainly did enough to disrupt life in the region with its sharp winds and icy roads, but it didn't amount to much snow-wise in the Red River Valley. Some areas in northern Minnesota did receive snow totals as high as 11 inches, however. Here are a selection of snowfall totals from across the region as reported Tuesday morning, Dec. 5, by the National Weather Service in Grand Forks . Totals will likely be updated as the day goes on.
