North Dakota weather joke
North Dakota Weather Observations

WEATHER BULLETIN (I like the Dakota attitude in this one)
Here in the Northern Plains we just recovered from an historic, may I
even say a "Weather Event" of "Biblical Proportions" with a terrible
blizzard that dumped up to 24" inches of snow with 50 mph winds that
created a white-out beyond huricane proportions, that broke trees in
half, stranded hundreds of motorist in near-lethal snowbanks, closed
all roads, isolated scores of communities, and cut power to tens of
thousands of people.
George Bush did not come . . . FEMA staged nothing . . . no one howled
for the government . . . no one even uttered an expletive on TV.
Nobody demanded $2,000 debit cards . . . no one asked for a FEMA trailer
home . . .no national news anchors moved in.
We just melted snow for water, closed Interstate 94, sent out caravans
to pluck people out of snow-engulfed cars, fired up wood stoves, broke
out oil lanterns or camp lamps, and put on an extra layer of clothes.
Even though a "Category 5" blizzard of this scale has never before
overtaken the region this early in the "blizzard season," we know it
can happen, we know how to deal with it ourselves, and we didn't even
give the blizzard a name.
Everyone in North Dakota is fine.
