Two BIG Contrasts

By

For about 24 hours now we have been getting buried under snow coupled with strong winds. This is NOT unusual for North Dakota but it still is disappointing. It has been enough snow that it has really brought the City to a stand still HOWEVER we (my family) decided we needed to go to Menards. It appeared that about 30 employees showed up... and us. It was kind of fun.

The Contrast

Yesterday we received our notice that The North Dakota State Fair, held right here in Minot, is set and ready to roll for July 21st - 29th. The North Dakota State Fair is the largest event in the State of North Dakota and this year I am going to purchase a whole event pass for the first time ever. I am really looking forward to taking in all the free events. If you are coming to Minot I'd love to have you join me.

I PROMISE IT WON'T SHOW JULY 21ST - THE 29TH.

😊

Well that isn't unusual as you mentioned Bob.  I so remember those 'March' days growing up in MN.  So you guys and 30 employees.  Bet you got really good service!!

Take care with your snow removal chores.

Thankfully, we do not have snow in Maryland today.

I assume Menards is a store? Bob "RealMan" Timm 

We are getting more rain this year than I can ever remember getting. 

It will be so nice to enjoy the fair in the Summer!

Bob "RealMan" Timm - Lots of snow can be exciting or sad. You seem to make it happy and productive. I remember Menards in Illinois. They always provided good service. I have not seen one in TX. This is a great post. Thanks for sharing!

Menards is like a large Home Depot Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist . I have been watching your weather and hoping NOT to hear about mudslides.

Thank you Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP . I was in love with Menard's for decades but over the last few months they have been upsetting me.

This snow isn't really bothering me because I know Spring is right around the corner.

Bob "RealMan" Timm - Spring is right around the corner. It is the truth and who could argue or get mad about that!

Wishing you well.

I know how you feel about the snow! It snowed here all day Friday and most of yesterday - we wound up with about 8" or so. It's already been plowed and shoveled and I'm looking forward to getting out later.

As for Summer, I can't wait for Spring!

Happy to hear the guarantee of no snow in July, Bob. But are you sure? I've been in Colorado visiting family and have it snow on me in June.

They are just starting to plow out here Kat Palmiotti . I heard people at church say 14" but it doesn't seem that heavy to me.  Today it's beautiful out with lots of sunshine but only in the teens.

I am sure Nina Hollander, Broker as I believe the National weather service said they has never been a reported snowfall in North Dakota in July. That being said I do remember a cold, windy 4th that was only in the upper 40's. It was miserable as so many people planned outdoor celebrations.

Bob "RealMan" Timm there's always that first time, Bob! It would just be my luck to be in your neck of the woods in the summer and have it snow!

I PROMISE I will keep you warm Nina Hollander, Broker .

I would hope there won't be snow for an event the last week in July.. that would really put a damper on things!

It certainly would Lise Howe and it would punctuate my need to move to a much warmer climate as well.
