It's January. It's Fargo, North Dakota. It's snowy.
Yep. That's part of the beauty of living here - we get snow in the winter. The picture here is looking up the steps of my deck from the patio. A daunting task.
It's just that we've never - in the history of our state - ever gotten this much snow in one month.
According The Forum, our official newspaper yesterday:
"The numbers are in: This wasn’t just the snowiest December on record in Fargo-Moorhead. It was the snowiest month – period.
"The previous record of 31.5 inches set in January 1989 was shattered Tuesday as 8.8 inches of snowfall brought this month’s total to 33.5 inches as of 6 p.m., according to the National Weather Service in Grand Forks, N.D. That also beat the previous record for December of 29.2 inches set in 1927."
Here's a song from one of our local (county) radio stations. I'm not a country fan, but this song gives you one aspect of what a traveling band might have to think about if coming to Fargo for a gig.
(Oh, guess I can't post the clip, but here's a link.)
I'm inspired now to go take more photos tomorrow, so watch for an update from snowy Fargo (it's snowing again tonight!).
