Another for the "You Already Know This Stuff" files ...

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!).

Happy 2009!

Thanks for visiting Joyce (or is it Linda? I couldn't tell by the name!). I'm so glad you stopped by!

I loved the song. Being from Minnesota and with all the snow we've had this year, I appreciate the humor. If we can't laugh at ourselves and where we've chosen to live, we should make another choice.
