Just got in myself from digging out. Wind is wiping up pretty good so I expect to be back out again in the morning. Glad it wasn't as bad as they said it was suppose to be.

A friend of mine posted this on fb. Then again, there really isn't anything to stop the wind pushing snow here until it reaches certain spots...

Typical blizzard day in Minny/SoDak. Getting ready to head to farm to do chores/dig out from the snow, Dad calls and he got stuck half mile from his place trying to get to the farm. He walked back to his house and I need to pick him up. Head his way, try to find an open road, come across a truck in the ditch, check it to make sure no one is inside. Try a couple other roads, find a car in highway ditch that is buried so deep you can just barely see the roof. Make it to within a quarter mile of folk's place but is impassable. Dad walks out to my truck in subzero wind-chill and we head for the farm. Can't get to the yard, park in field and walk in. Get tractors fired up, start scooping out several hundred feet of fenceline bunk by hand. Neighbor calls, been working all night in town and needs to get home. Dad takes off with loader to blaze a 2+ mile trail so neighbor can get home (luckily this gave me time to get far enough ahead clearing bunks so old man doesn't have to pitch in). Feed cows & calves. Take off in loader tractor for folk's place to pull out the stuck truck. Plow 3 miles of gravel to get within 100 yards only to run into a massive drift. Spend good half hour digging thru it, almost get stuck a couple times. Pull truck out, head for a warm Spam & scrambled eggs lunch from mom. Partially clear that yard then back to the farm to bed cow & calves. Finally head home myself, county roads mostly impassable to anything but 4x4s, visibility is terrible. Feed/water chickens, collect eggs (7eggs, 8 chickens = good haul!). Tomorrow, figure out how to get a 5th wheel trailer out of the snowed in farm yard so I can dig out my place with the skid loader. Every day is a new day!

Without a loader just sit and wait for the plow to open the road and neighbor to open the driveway because your not going anywhere.

Another inch last night, but I think the whole snow pack is settling. 2' in the woods.

It's just blowing around now.

If your taking about the rain from last night we got two METH addicts stuck in the field right beside our tripod stand. They say they were out early this morning fishing and looking tona way to get to our ponds with a trailer behind a two wheel drive four runner and no fishing rods. Took about 2.5 hrs with the cops there and all. They hadn’t stolen anything yet and all of my posted signs have been torn down so there was no charge other than the 200 that the tow truck charged him. Two cops thought he was on meth and one thought it was crack. What a morning.

I only got about an inch of snow. The wind blew hard though. 40-50 mph for a day and a half. I have less snow in the yard than I did before the wind. It cleaned the yard, not plugged it. It must have been from a good direction. I was at the fur sale two days and missed it. It snowed and blew in Bismarck but not much snow. SE ND had the roads no travel advised and closed for about 48 hours. The snow I got is up by trapper les, but he likes my snow.
