Monday Is Closed

April 15, 2013

In like a lion, out like... No wait, that was March. And April snows don't produce much for flowers.
The state, the northern tier, was hit by a massive snowstorm that began Sunday, and is still producing snow this morning. Interstate 94 is closed from the Montana line to the Minnesota line, and travel on all other roads in North Dakota is ill-advised.
Schools around the area are closed today, and many events are postponed. Make sure you check first before going out.
