If he can get there, good luck finding a parking place.

I'd be hundreds of miles away from the spring run-off when it comes. Wow.

My FIL was from ND. He'd tell stories of being able to stand on the snow and be looking over the roof of the house. Trains would be completely covered.

Hell hole!

The feeling of being buried alive must have produced a lot of cases of claustrophobia.

Annual precipitation in Nome is very light. Ferocious zephyrs tear ice particles off the frozen sea in winter and it piles up. Highways once used pieces of lath with a strip of reflective tape to guide drivers or snow machine operators during frequent white-outs. Drifts downwind from one of those laths might be eight feet high.

So a California architect was hired to design a regional high school there. He looked at the precip figures and gave it a flat roof. It was whipped up one summer and came down that winter.

They're having the same problem along Lake Erie. They're calling it "Ice Tsunami."

According to AOC it's the calm before the storm.
