Fargo is where we lived before moving to the Turtle Mountains, which is even farther north. So far north that we could walk or swim into Canada if the Border Patrol would allow us to do it.
And of course, we now are in a winter storm watch for late Saturday night through Monday morning.
It's been relatively mild outside, and the driveway is mudding up quite nicely. Tonight Jim and I traveled to town to pick up the first baby bottles we've ever purchased (more on that later), and I felt as if I was riding in a race car as it careened through patches of heavy mud. So much for having a clean car. And now they tell us it's going to snow -- and even snow heavily at times. The only thing to keep in mind in times like this is the fact that the snow can't last long when it's April.
A MIX OF RAIN & SNOW IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP OVER THE WEST
SATURDAY NIGHT, THEN SPREAD EAST & CHANGE TO SNOW SUNDAY.
THE SNOW MAY BE HEAVY AT TIMES WITH SIGNIFICANT SNOW AMOUNTS
POSSIBLE. IN ADDITION, GUSTY WINDS MAY CAUSE SIGNIFICANT BLOWING
AND DRIFTING OF SNOW & LOW VISIBILITIES, SIGNIFICANTLY
THE LATEST MODEL DATA HAS SHOWN AN NORTHWARD SHIFT IN THE TRACK OF
THE STORM, WHICH WOULD PUT THE HEAVIEST PRECIPITATION OVER THE
NORTHERN HALF OF WESTERN & CENTRAL NORTH DAKOTA. HOWEVER,
UNCERTAINTY STILL REMAINS REGARDING THE EVENTUAL TRACK OF THIS
STORM & THE AMOUNT OF PRECIPITATION IT COULD PRODUCE.
Marci at Down on the Farm keeps telling me we're crazy for living up here, but when it's almost all I've known since birth it is just something you get used to. Usually. I must admit I am very, very ready for a real spring.
