    Well were in a blizzard warning. 10-14 inches there saying by tommrow morning. I'll belive it when I see it, but it is storming out pretty good right now. Interstate is closed through the whole state. Was out for a bit this morning but it was worthless, just kept blowing in. Never thought Id go from combineing corn to plowing snow in a matter of hours! lol, There will be video to come after tonight and tommrow! Heres a pic I just snapped out the basement window.

    WOW! I see a good chunk of money there. The blowing snow would just be the bad part of the whole thing. Be carefull out there and have fun.

    Can't wait to get at it........ once the wind dies down. We really haven't had a blizzard in quite a few years, we've gotten heavy spring snows, but not a blizzard. I wonder how much equipment will break down for us?:rolleyes:

    North Fargo checking in, stoke the fire and fill the coffee mug. Not much for depth but some interesting drifts already. Window wells are filling up with snow on the south side.

    We arent gettin much of anything up in Grand Forks... MAYBE an inch or two of snow so far with a ton of wind.. not worth trying to push anything untill the wind dies down a lot but there are bound to be some rock hard drifts after all this.. yuck..

    EDIT: Figures, soon as I post this I go look out the window and can't hardly see across the street haha

    The farm my friend works on has something around 90 acres left. And they arn't the only ones who arn't done. Northern, IL had some wet weather that kept most guys from starting on time.

    Just heard from my boss and we are heading out at midnight, should be a very interesting night with all of this wind!! I think this is the first blizzard I've been a part of in my short life and I have to admit it, I'm lovin every minute of it!! I tried to run to walmart about two hours ago and had to turn back I couldn't see ten yards in front of my truck, everyone in fargo BE CAREFUL when your out, roads suck and it's goin to be cold!!

    Yes area farmers are still getting corn off, although they are nearing the end of what can be harvested. We had a very wet November and fields could not be harvisted untill the ground froze. I spoke with a producer 3 days ago who claimed he had 30% moisture yet. The dryers are getting a workout.

    same here, the farmers were unable to get all the corn picked before the weather closed in. sure is funny seeing a combine out in the snow pickin corn.

    Ya, it's gonna be fun. I looked at the hourly and they are forecasting 27mph winds straight out of the north all through tomorrow with continuing snow. FINALLY a decent snow fall.
